Need D1S bulb in 6000K

Hi all,

I'm looking to replace my D1S bulb, in 6000K. I just would like to get some vendor references as to where to pick up a pair of D1Ss.

TIA

Been using DDM Tuning for years for all of my HID lighting needs. They source DIRECTLY from China (which is where most manufactures get them) and they pass the savings directly to you. They have a great selection of colors. Give them a look. Just google DDM Tuning.

I have a set of Phillips Ultinon 6000k D1S bulbs from highperformancebulbs. Far from cheap, but worth every penny!

I recommend those also. Not only because they are are up to manufacturers standards but because the cheap ones tend to blow ballast. We've had a quite a few customers in that situation already.

Absolutely positively do not cheap out on your D1S bulbs - the ballasts will cost you an arm and a leg.

You guys mention ballast being blown. Do you think the cause could be due to either the use of a non branded bulb or using a 55w d1s instead of 35w? I'm leaning more towards the latter.

Note: I would only ever use 35w, but maybe those with failed ballast were using 55w.

Hmmm, well I would never use anything but a 35w D1S...Waaaay too risky.

I'm using the CBIs now. First off, these aren't actually blue despite saying 'Cool Blue'. They start pretty blue but is more of a pure white after they warm up.

The light intensity from these is amazing. They just light everything up and the cutoff is so clean and crisp. The far left and far right were much more lit up. I personally am able to see much more detail at night now. I don't think I'll ever need to try any other bulbs on the market.

Additional note, they're not 5500k, the box reads 5000k. If you want some shots of them, I can get them for you.

A pair of D1S bulbs should never cost $22. If it does, I'd steer clear.

Idk... I've been using ebay d1s/d2s bulbs for the past 5 years and never had a single problem. I've also had philip ultinons and they are brighter for the color but not $100 brighter. On my last car, the $10 d2s bulbs lasted 3 years and still going strong. The ~$15 D1s bulbs I have now lasted for 9 months now and still shows no sign of weakness.

Low beams don't mean much to me so I don't need perfect colored low beams as long as it doesn't look yellow like the OEM ones.

Call me cheap but eBay products are not always junk, or else why would sellers have such high feedback ratings?

Kisho,

Thanks for the feedback! If it is not too much trouble, could you post some pix of the Phillips CBI on you car?

TIA

MTEC D1S bulbs definitely will not blow your OEM ballast out.
