Best thing is, replace the bulb with left hand side bulb and see whether issue remains.. if issue resolves, then it could be due to some issue in your right side bulb connector..

Let us know your findings, then we can guide you to identify the exact root cause.

there cant be two different bulb types specially on a N16 unless the holders were changed previously n still why do that?

some cars like mine have HID (D2S) for low beam and for H1 for HI-beam

Better check with someone else who uses the same car to see what the original bulb socket is.. As far as i know it should be H4.

Wait!!. What you are saying is you have 2 different bulb types on left and right sides? That's impossible unless you have a pretty fu*ked up light setup. If you have H4 , it has both low and high beams inside. If you have H1 , it's for the high beam and there must be another H7 for the low beam. Which means it's a quad light setup. ( H1+H7 and  H1+H7)

Can we see a photo of your head lights ?

Do you have the n16 facelift or the non facelift ?

Are you referencing to the high and low bulbs within the same sides lights ?

IH01 = H4B

its the same thing as H4, someone would have changed your headlight due to an accident or something.

Just get 2 H4 bulbs.
