Order No.: S-B-82.10/698

Group: 82

SUBJECT:

MY-All, Models 163, 164, 170, 171, 202, 203, 204, 207, 209, 210, 211, 212, 215, 216, 219, 220, 221, 230, 251, 463

Uprated H7 Bulbs

The new uprated H7 bulbs are available. They have approximately 80% more light and approximately 30% more road surface illumination for high

beams compared with standard H7 bulbs. Due to the brightness difference between a standard H7 bulb and an uprated H7 bulb, bulbs must be fitted

in pairs when installing for the first-time; i.e., left and right headlamp. If an uprated bulb fails, replace as a pair as it is likely that (as an example); if

a left headlamp fails, the right may follow.

The new bulbs can be recognized by their chrome-plated lamp cap, and they can be installed into all H7 halogen headlamps. The set with part

number A 000 998 00 07 contains two uprated bulbs.

The standard H7 bulb N 400809 000007 will still be available.
