What spec have you got?

Traditionally FIAT sell 'city cars'

Where streetlamps do the work

My early cars had 30Watt incandescents

Yes higher lumen bulbs should help.. just be aware of consumption..and heat

Re: Lights

Hi

Can you guys clarify the bulb types for the Tipo as ECP is telling me one thing and ABD is telling me another:

Headlights ECP H7 ABD H7
Main Beam ECP H7 ABD H15
Fog Lights ECP H11 ABD H9

I've tried to Google but it doesn't help.

Thanks.

Depends on the year .I think 2016 had different dipped and main beam's
2017 onward with the projector's headlights and led DRLs like mine definitely have both dipped and main beam as h7s

For the headlights bulb's?



Don't know what engine you have but on my 1.4 16v both dipped and main beam are accessible just from the rubber covers on the back no need to remove anything else
