Silverlight bulbs for 135

Can anyone answer this? I wanted to buy Silverlight from ********** but I never heard back from them to see if they fit. We have PY21W bulbs but on **********s it says the bulbs are 7507. Do they fit??? :iono:

Sylvania lists it at a 7507 however I do not fully trust their database. If you have a chance, snap a picture of the factory bulb and shoot it over to me. I can confirm the exact sizing for you.

That could be an 1156 or 7507 bulb as they are almost identical. Check the metal pin offset on the base of the bulb, if they are 150 offset- 7507. If they are 180 offset- 1156. Most likely they are 7507 as BMW changed to this bulb type sometime around 2004.

Let me know if you need any assistance in sourcing the correct bulb as well. We stock these directly

these are so close that you can actually file off a 1156 in order to make it a 7507

You can but might as well order the correct bulb for your car if you can check.

Yeah filing it down is not a big deal, heck did it on our car and ran it for 4.5 years before selling the car. It's not as big of a deal.

I think the rep you contacted is on Holiday vacation, if you need help you can always call us here at the office at 714.582.3330 we'll be happy to answer any question you have over the phone.

so how did you make out with those bulbs? did you purchase the offset 150 degree single filament? do they only blink and not turn on w/ the headlights?
