H7 or 9006 HID Kit into retrofit?

Here is the deal. Have a 99' BMW 528i.
Had the OEM Headlights that use to have the HID Kit d2r installed.

Replaced my headlights with a retro fitted version, this came with the halogen bulbs. Now the Bulb is a H7 inside a 9006 casing connected to my standard wire.

The question is,
If I buy a Raptor HID Kit from DDM tuning which kit would I need to buy. Is it a H7 for bulb sizing purposes or is it a 9006 for plug in purposes?

I attached a picture of my Headlight so maybe this will help.

Searched the forum and didn't find my answer so if someone would be so kind to help me with this problem?

DDM=Trouble. Do a search for DDM on here to find out just how much trouble. If you're looking for good lights, just stick with whitestars that fit OEM.
