The U stands for Ultraviolet filter. Just make sure that you get bulbs that have the UV filter, otherwise the lenses may yellow over time.

It seems the passenger side bulb-replacement is going to be hell to play.....???!!!

You also mentioned the (original) Osram spec, which is on my car, too (I have the Clio III, Sept 2009) - 12V 55W H7U - what is th "U" for? No-one lists their bulb with this letter, but only as H7, or H4, etc...???

(Attached is the one I bought from Halfords - ONLY 12!!!! ).
