Default 2002 Morette question

I am working on getting my morette to be twin HID (over one year in so far). In doing so I have lost track with which light is the factory low beam, but because of the housing I want the outter (right and left) most light to be the low. To be 100% sure before I order the $300 HID kit the outter bulbs, housed in the projectors, are H7's, right?

ThankS
MCL

Yes. And you don't need a kit for the H7's, the housings will accept standard D2S bulbs with centering adapters and you can use OEM grade ballasts.
Are you sure about the HID high beams? This isn't the best idea if they see typical use, HIDs aren't good for lights that may be flashed or used for brief periods.

I don't use the highs all that much or the lows for that matter. Plus the lows is the kit I already have installed. Are the D2S a better bulb then the H7? I was going to get another kit from autodoodad.com to match the one I got from them before.

D2S are genuine HID bulbs. H7, or H-whatever are halogen bulbs. There are no such thing as Hx HID bulbs, only rebased aftermarket ones that have modified bases to fit into halogen housings.
With H7 lights you have the advantage of being able to use the genuine HID bulbs without having to buy someone's kit with rebased bulbs from who knows where.
If you rarely use the high beams there is little reason to put HIDs in them, just get some high-efficacy H1 bulbs like Osram Silverstars or Narva Rangepowers.
