    Re: Installing D2S headlights???

    They ARE D2S bulbs for the HID AFL system, and they're fairly easy (if you have a small maneuverable hand) otherwise you'll have to move the fusebox on the driver side and airbox on the passenger side.
    Once you get to them, you just twist to release the connector, and then a fine metal spring thingy keeps the bulb in. Be careful as to no move the AFL system around too much when changing bulbs.

    Daddie2k3, Capt's thread is excell on lighting! But,do you need to change your bulbs already? What model do you have? (pls expand Profile) Did it come with OEM HID's ? The base/Luxury sleds did not have. (had Halogens) Are you attempting a conversion?

    You know of course, the SRX has 50K miles/4 year Bumper-to-bumper warranty, including headlites.

    Sorry for no profile but it's a 2011 SRX Performance and yes it has factory HIDS but I was going to change the fogs to Hids but wanted matching low beams and he already has an easy write up on fogs(thanks Capt) but didn't say much on low beams that's why I asked but I do thank you for bringing the warranty to my attention because I might reconsider or either put factory back in when aftermarket goes out and then wait to they go out as well...

    Re: Installing D2S headlights???

    Beware, the 10000 Kelvin temp lites will be very BLUE! Also the higher the temp color rating the shorter the lifespan of the bulb. (Note: Temp color is not an actual temp that burns in the bulb, but rather a reference to a color scale, for Kelvin temp colors)

    The factory bulbs are about 5200K Temp I believe. I like them fine, but a 6000K would be my limit, before they get too Blue for my tastes........and maybe the Constables too!

    Most of the HID aftermarket sites have a pix of the various colors/temps! Take a look again at Capt's too. I think he posts the Temp he used....

    Re: Installing D2S headlights???

    I would like to just change out the headlights I have for a more "white" color similar to HIDS, I read alot on the forum but really didnt get a clear
    answer as to what would be an easy and good bulb to put in.. Anyone have a bulb that they used and liked? I am not going to switch out for HIDS,, too much work. I had them in my Lexus and loved them though.. but changing out bulbs right now would be an ok option.
