Anyone know where to get new low beam HID bulbs for our Escalades? I have read to many horror stories of fake Sylvania and Phillips D1R HID bulbs on eBay. I was thinking the Sylvania Silverstar D1R HID's possibly? I am fixing to clean the haze out of my headlights and thought that I would just update the low beams while I was in there. Thanks in advance!

Re: D1R replacement's
Our drivers side burned out a few months ago, I went the Auto Zone route and purchased the Phillips replacement for about $100.00. I did not replace both together "like we are told to do". Anyways I put the new one in and it was a shade off for a few nights, but it has changed to match the original from '05 on the passenger side.

The parts store bulbs are much yellower than the factory 4,300K bulbs.
I believe the originals are Philips XenStarts (they are for other models). You can get them here for less than the aftermarket ones, and you save a little more if you buy 2:
I have bought bulbs from them, they're genuine.

What is the cross reference to a D1R, Kensun as their bulbs starting with an H1, H2 etc?
