fairmont ones are different shape to the gli and futura ... they also have two highbeam globes instead of the one in the gli and futura's.

not according to my ford factory wiring diagram, and when I upgraded my high beam globes I only had one in either side so where is the other one I have missed???

EF GLi/Futura headlights are COMPLETELY different to all High Series Headlights.

the standard light's have high and low beam (H$ bulb) if you pull the black plastic thing off you will find 2 screws in there you will find the extra high beam (H1 bulb)

yeah I agree with you on that bit but my the light circuit in the factory manual shows the fairmont lights have two dedicated high beam bulbs on each side - including the high/low combination.

u sure the standard lights have the high/low beam as well as the high beam??

in EL (futura) there is one dedicated low beam light and one dedicated high beam light. the low beam light is not a high/low combo one. first time i bought some for my car i wasnt sure which ones they were so jsut asked for a bulb for my car and was given a H4, which is a high/low combo. as soon as took the old one out realised they were wrong as the low beam globe is a H1.

since then ive looked at globes in both autobarn supercrap and repco and after telling the salesman i needed a H1 and which car it was for each told me i was wrong. the repco guy even came out to the car and i took the globe out and showed him.

in an EL the low beams are h1, which is only a low beam globe, not a high low combo. i was under the impression low series EF were the same, and only high series had the H4 high/low combo

I recently replaced the lights in my EL Futura, with Phillips 'BlueVision' bulbs (very good BTW).

H1 and H3

H1 = lows
H3 = highs

(both packs also came with a pair of W5W parker bulbs)

data_mine, ive got the philips 'crystal vision' in my lows, and yes they are pretty good, but how are the highs?? ive found that my original (yellower) highs seem brighter than a mates EL with some sort of white high beam, which seems to really lack the intensity of mine... so didnt really wanna lash out another $100 for the highs if there not that good
