Replacing stock HID/Xenon bulbs

I want to replace the stock D2S 4300K HID bulbs with some 8000K ones to match my Chromiums. Anyone have a hookup for a good deal on some D2S?

And the normal DRLs are halogens right? Is there anyway to match these close to 8000K?

the low wattage in DRL mode is hard to produce a solid color without yellow showing through at times.

Good deals on D2S bulbs, you can try www.hidplanet.com

That is correct. The best option for the DRLs is to get the turned off by the dealer, but since you're in Canada, you're stuck with the halogen color.

LOL that is self-explanatory. It's just from the post you made it seem that only 6000K are carried on your site. Point taken
