Litronic bulb replacement

Hello I searched for this but did not find definitive answer,
my low beam bulb on a 03 boxster litronics headlight went out,
is the replacement going to be a xenon bulb or halogen, if xenon I presume its going to be this:

Headlight Bulb - Low Beam - D2S Xenon, (12V - 35W)

thanks, Bruce

assuming that all Litronics have HID bulbs, it's the xenon, not halogen.
It's easy to remove the headlight housing, open the back and check the bulb to verify

Time to convert to LED's

I recently did mine and so far they are working just fine. I also did the LED fog lights, and with the low beams on, the Litronic's look great.

You converted your Xenons to LED?
