    No, both main and dip beams use H7 single filament bulbs. I've upgraded mine to Philips VisionPlus and it makes a big difference. Their still rated at 55w but, according to Philips give 50% more light.

    By driving lamps do you mean the fog lights below the bumper. If so, the are legally fog lights and not driving lights and should only be used in fog or falling snow. These days a lot of people seem to drive around with their front fog lights on all the time. Most annoying for other drivers.
