50 Watt Halogen. Work great. Not 250% brighter as claimed, but maybe about twice as bright. Remarkable difference when compared to my SLE with stock lamps.

Mine came from Autozone and aren't there anymore. At least not my local store. I doubt they're the same simple because he wasn't happy with his, and I am mine.

LED bulbs MAY cause a problem with the lamp monitor for the SSEi'*, and remember one key feature, they'll only project the light to the rear, and not back onto the rear reflector as the lights were designed for. The end effect will be less light, or poorer distribution of the light.
