The GT uses all H7 bulbs. One for the low beam, and two for the high beam.

Mine came with the factory Xenon low beam. I just bought a set of H7 5000K HID kits for the high beams, but haven't had the chance to install them yet. I bought this kit from CQlight.ca because of lots of good reports from others here and the latest generation tiny ballasts. There are several other options available, as a quick scan through the Lighting forum here will show.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
