Headlight bulbs?

So I have a 06 Passat and my headlights are shot. I got another pair but there seems to be a difference and my bulbs and harness wont fit. Did VW change something at some point?

if so does anyone have pictures of the other type.

Do you have HID (High Intensity Discharge) or filament (Halogen) system?

For filament bulbs there are two types of holder: Hella and Valeo. But both take the same bulb styled as H7
They're the filament system. you bring up a good point I need to check to see if they're hella Or valeo.
So i checked. They are two diffrent types. Old ones are hela new ones are the other. So now i need to find new clips.
