I have been going round and round on trying to find the correct bulb for my low beams. I was told it was an H7 bulb and I bought the Sylvania H7 ST Silverstar bulb, but it doesn't look anything like the bulb I took out. The bulb I took out had a Philips 12258 part number and only 1 prong instead of 2. Help please, I need to find the right bulb fast.

It is H7. I just put silverstars in my 99 a couple of days ago

Actually... it sounds like you have HID (Xenon) Headlights. That number is: HID-D1S

This might be a dumb question, but is there any chance that you are referring to the fog lamp (the one that is installed in the bumper)? That is a single-terminal lamp.

Thanks everyone for all the help, but it was actually a H1 bulb. I think my car has all German bulbs and equipment on it cause my taillight bulb was the same way. Finding the correct parts for this car is nearly impossible. The Caddy dealer can't even help. Sorry for the confusion, but I've just got an odd ball car. Thanks.

The whole car is: German, French, British and American - all rolled into one. Mostly German and American
