Lightbulb Pics and Impressions: MTEC D1S 6000K

I recently got a set of MTEC 6000k D1S and installed them last night.

The color is white with just a hint of blue, compared to the stock D1S which look almost perfectly white. Side by side, the stocks look yellowish compared to the MTEC.

Also included are some comparos with some GP Thunder H8s I'm running. I'd have taken some shots with my RD LED angel eyes but... I sold my set last month

DISCLAIMER: Sorry the pics aren't the greatest. The white balance of the crappy point and shoot I was using was screwing with the actual color. So, I opted for the good ol' iPhone which surprisingly took shots a bit more representative of the actual color.

To order, PM Derrick aka E92-Lighting!

Let me know what you think!

I ordered 8000K bulbs from (prostreetlighting.com) and theyre giving off a green tent. The worst thing is theyre not even as bright as the OEM's. standing in front of the car they look good, but other then that, they are really bad bulbs. What should I do????????

They look great XPO186. I will order a set of the MTEC D1S 6000k from Derrick. He is out of the country until April 11th. The fogs I upgraded to are the Nokya 7000k. They look very good. I want to upgrade my Angel Eyes too.

Sorry for the crappy pics guys... I'm not a photography buff nor do I even own a decently performing camera.

I'll make sure to get some clearer pics when the opportunity presents itself... hopefully at a meet or something so I could further compare the color to stock units.

Thanks again for the bulbs Derrick!

yeah whenever you have time take some clearer pictures. i wanna see how they look before i buy them. because i was thinking of getting the D1S hid from ddm tunning that cost $85, but if these are better for $100 something? i would rather get these. when your driving in the car do they look white?

How come pic 2 looks a little bluer than pic 3. I'm looking to make my hids the same color brightness as say a mercedes. Just seems like everytime I see hid lights in my rear view it isn't from another Bmw. In your opinion which pic would you say is the most accurate in terms of color. And would you say 6000k is a similar if not the same as a merc?

EDIT: Sorry I meant to say that every time I see a pair of hid lights in my rearview that I like the color/brightness of its not from a BMW.

if you converting from halogen to HID then, you should buy the bulb in 4000k-6000k, anything over is just cosmetic looks. Human eyes can't much in range from 6000k to ultra violet lights.

That picture from E92-Lighting is my car. I bought them from Derrick. They came out great. I'm running the 6000k xenons with RD Angel eyes and Nokya 7000k fogs.

Here is another picture I took with the my new lighting set up.
