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?

LOL only reason I'm sticking to DDM is because I have used them before and bought 12000k on a jaguar and 6000K on a Lincoln LS. Both of which had pleasurable results and good quality unless they have changed their brand and material I've never had a problem with DDM except shipping.

Anyway which site do u suggest and which brand?

Also u haven't answered my question so I would still need to know which to buy.
