I am thinking of Upgrade to HID on my 02 Escalade looking thru ebay I notice for the 9006 series bulb the offered this a D2S and a D2R bulb:confused:

What is the difference between D2R and D2S?

D2S HID bulbs are designed for cars equipped with projector headlights.
D2R HID bulbs are designed for reflectors based headlights.

My question is which one should I get?

And if anyone can recommend say a good brand,light output and seller i would appreciate it thanks:thumbsup:

Your bulb type is 9006. D2R and D2S are also bulb types but for different vehicles like BMW and AUDI. The main headlight bulb for the Cadillac Escalade is 9006.

Phillips and McCulloch make the best aftermarket HID kits in terms of perforamce and pricing. Both run around $400 with bulbs. 5000K is the best as far as visibility and looks whitish with a hint of blue at 3200lumens and 6000k gives you a bluer tint at 2800lumens. Either way, the MAX i would go is 8000k and personally I even think 6000k is not that good of a tradeoff with 5000k being the best performer at very little sacrifice to looks.

BTW, YOUR FONT IS ANNOYING

I got my HID kit from www.xenondepot.com for $500 and it was just a plug and play installation.

The most light output is from 4300k bulbs, as said that is the stock color/temp, I would get Phillips or Hella, both are use the same ballasts. I have HID fogs that I just sold (trading truck in) and just removed my HID high beams, will put them in the 07' Escalade, I used all Phillips bulbs and ballasts, these are probably 6 years old now and work like new. :)
