    As title, looking to replace the main bulbs, and noticed two "extra" dome-like lenses.

    Are the 2 x H7 in there as well, therefore 4 required?

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    Are the lights in the bumper "driving lights" or "fog lights"?

    From the quick look I had earlier, are the "dome" or "fish-eye" lights the normal driving dipped headlights?

    And the other "naked" bulbs are the full beams?

    Yes. You could tell that by putting the lights on and walking around the front for a look!

    Indeed - that's exactly what I did!

    This is my first VAG, I've had almost exclusively Peugeot for the last ten years. On the Pugs I've had, the headlight bulb that is visible is usually the dipped and main beam, and there is is only 1 bulb per side.

    Hence me expecting that the normal driving lights would be the ones that I can see through the outer lense, and the "extra" 2 bulbs behind the dome would be the main beam of sorts.

    I'm up to speed now though, thanks for your info.

    To clarify for others that may stumble upon this thread:

    - Dipped normal driving lights - behind the domed "fish-eye" - H7.
    - Full beam - visible from outside of car - H7.
    - Fog lights - located in bumper - H11.
    - Side lights - ??
    - Indicators - ??
