    Most coachbuilts will have completely different housings to the base vehicle. However, there are very few bulb types. The main differences are if the tail shares a bulb with brake, or is separate. Fogs, reverse and indicators are usually the same bulb, although indicators may need a amber version, if the unit is clear.

    You also get "wedge" bulbs, but these are rare, except as licence plate. LEDs can either be standard shape retrofit, or proprietary.

    easiest way is take the lens/es off and take a look. be aware though that post 2006 models, the x250 do not like LED bulbs due to the can bus system and light failure circuit

    oh and buy quality branded ones too as the cheap ones also cause strange faults on the circuit too
