Are the Litronic parking light bulbs "normal"?

My right side parking light is out and I hate pulling the headlight if these are some kind of special bulb that I won't be able to get at O'Reily or Walmart (no dealers around here). My car is a 2000 S with the Litronic. Are these parking lights a generic bulb?

I had to order mine online. No stores around here carried them.

I got LED bulbs from eBay, search for "BAX9S H6W 64132", make sure you pick a design which has multiple surface mounted LED modules which shine in all directions, not just forward (much cheaper btw)
I like the much whiter light which matches the color of the Xenons
And of course they will pull less amps

The guy at the local O'Reilly has one coming in for me. One of the online Porsche parts stores has it cheap but the shipping was 3 times as much as the bulb.
