Help choosing some HID bulbs

Hey guys,

Need some help. I'm buying a set of AsianAnts retro's from another member and he had the Phillips 85122+ bulbs... I've heard they're equivalent to 4300k and u was looking more like 6000k. Anyone know where I can replacement bulbs, and which ones I would need?

I went to TRS website, but they have a lot of different bulbs for sale, and I have no idea which ones I would need!

Thanks for your help

He's doing projector retrofits using the TRS D2S or FX-R projector kit.
It uses the D2S burners.

Phillips only makes D2S based lamps, and they only make the 4300k temperature.
TRS offers other color temperatures in the Morimoto lamps. I do not recommend 6000k... it's not "too" blue, but it is getting into the range of reduced light output. The greatest output and "whitest" color is 4300k.

Remember, the stock headlights out there that look yellow are halogen. Their color temp is lower... between 3500k and 4000k.

Here's my Phillips D2S...

I'm with rich.

Don't fall into the hype.

High dollar OEM systems use Philips 4300k for a reason.

Blue from a real hid projector setup with 4300k is an artifact of the projector alone, not the bulbs. On an OEM setup, u only see blue when the vehicle is coming towards u if ur below the cutoff. This blue is the color band, as the vehicle gets closer to an object, the colorband becomes thin and just along the top of the light output. Further away and the band gets wider just because of the optics.

Hid and halogen manufacturers who want to sell products based on hype and the bling factor offer blue bulbs. Philips has a standard that OEMS prefer and they want more usable light that is less irritating to the human eye, and that's why they don't use blue. Its irritating to the human eye.

Besides, the higher in kelvin, the dimmer they get.

So I have a two fogs and a 20" light bar from http://okledlightbars.webs.com/apps/...s/show/3669919 and the temp it claims is 6000-6500. The stock light bulbs seem really yellow compared to my light bar. What temp and watt would you recommend?

For HID, 35 watt, 4300k-5000k.

I did fail to mention the blue appearance Justus mentioned.

The projector gets its sharp cutoff due to a fence. The light passing over that fence bends slightly, which produces a bit of a prism effect at the high frequency end of the spectrum.
This is the "blue" that seems to be present in factory HID projectors.

Going to 6000k and above can also draw the wrong kind of attention from LEO.

You want Osram CBI. Brighter than Phillips 85122+ and is a pure white with slight blue tint as they age. Start at 5K and increase with age but not 6K. 6K bulbs and up are all junk made in China.
