Thanks in advance,
I'll only say i used 0.212" outward offset. I came up with a clever way to hold lens in and it wasn't a 3" plumbing part.

Earlier poster said the lens holder is fragile and will break when you remove the OE lens. This is mostly untrue. I did eventually break one of the 3 lens holder fingers but this was my fault. I flexed the finger too far while fitting my "adapter".

D2S can go into projectors using this bulb holder I found. Letís you use the D1S style clip and D2S is inserted into front of metal box.

Iíve heard using the d1s ó> d2s igniter adapters gives a better light output than running the d1s bulb. Did you see an increase in light output switching to d2s bulbs?

Lights not mounted into car yet. My main motivation to converting to D2S is running a boosted ballast. Going to 50W. Our OE D1S ballasts run at 35W each.

I should have a appreciable increase going to clear lens and focused in first place. Add in the 15W bump (that's a 42% increase from 35), i should see lots better. My 335d has fog light delete so I'm missing those. I changed front bumper to M3 rep and went with the large M3 air ducts with no fogs anymore.
