These babies just arrived today! Can't wait to install them on Sat. From what I've read, these are one of the best, if not the best D1S HID bulbs out there. For $200/pair, they better be good! Stay tuned for updates!

I've read about them and they're supposed to be pure white compared to other after market 5000k bulbs put there. Make sure you get the original Osram Xenarc Cool Blue Intense. There are a lot of cheap knock offs out there.

I'll post an update around Sat.

Hey Larry! I just finished installing the bulbs. They're waaay brighter than the stockers! The photo doesnt give it justice. It needs 20hrs or so to break them in but it's already really white now.

Coming from an S2000, the projectors of the V2 suck big time.

Not a hint of blue at all. They're pure white. According to others who used the bulbs, they require a break in period of 20hrs. They're supposed to turn even whiter after that.

My OEM bulbs look yellowish compared to the stock corner led lights. Now it's the other way around

The OEM D1S bulbs look yellowish compared to the corner leds on the headlight. Now it's the other way around.

I didnt change the fogs by the way. I dont use them at all. You hardly even need headlight to drive at night here in Dubai. It's really bright out here with lamp post every few yards.
