What's THE Best D2S Bulb?
 
I'm looking for replacement D2S bulbs for my headlights (stock adaptive xenons) for my ZHP - I've seen too many websites/brands/types/etc.

What brand/manufacturer makes the best high-quality ones? I'm looking for 6000K plug-and-play ones that will just take 10 minutes to replace the factory bulbs that I'm still running.

I've heard that Philips' Ultinon 6000K ones are good but then again, Khoalty's got some listed (no brand name mentioned) at a much lower price and has 1 or 2 good reviews....plus 100's of other kinds out there. :hmm:

hey, I am sorry I see the error, and I have my web guy fixing it now.. However to speed up your order what color do you want? 6000K i have a second one there with just the 6000k add to cart and then change quantity in cart and you will be all set.
Thanks Danny

Thanks. I checked it out but it's 42000K - I'm set on getting 6000K bulbs, brand can vary but the color temp has to be that. (I'm going for a slight blue hue to match my AE's)

Well you said you wanted best and thats the one with the best light output, trs also offers there morimoto bulbs for 45 with free shipping they have different temperature bulbs and currently i have the 5k ones right now and i love them great light output.

sunnyjay 06-28-2012 08:53 PM

The higher the color temp the lower the lumes output. Meaning there is less useable light as the color temp raises.

Ours are the same as what others sell for 55, we just get them at a cheaper price because we buy tons of them direct. They aren't dropshipped like the others, that's where the price increase comes from, dropshipping overcharges ;)

Not output actually just quality but yeah I've heard that temp is actually the purest white. I'm just looking for the most white light output while having a slight tint of blue....

Yeah I know, which is why I want 6000K and nothing higher. It's less bright but not by much and I'm willing to have decreased output for a little color but nothing radical.

$25 for a pair? :excited: I will actually buy a pair just because of the price haha
But I will bookmark this thread and continue to look for other options just in case :eeps:
Although I must say, your CF splitters and black roundels were priced well and were worth the value. (But, the trunk one was a little lopsided....)

Osram cbi then Philips 85122+

umnitza 07-02-2012 08:18 PM

Osram are good, our experience has been poor with them in general but most people like them. The experience is more related to their wholesale pricing (very high) and their relative lack of "color" that we like (perhaps it was the style they pushed on us).
Anyways, we prefer now to use and sell our 85122WX and standard 85122 bulbs from Philips. We got a great deal on them, and passed that savings on. If anyone wants the cheaper simple non-branded ones, we've dropped our price on those to $30 shipped, but they are only average bulbs and usually last between 6-24 months.

^^^ these aren't genuine Philips bulbs
