    Hi mate,

    I'm sure the S3 buld is a D2S bulb, Most of the sellers recommend a 6000k bulb as after 6000k the brightness of the bulb gets brighter(or more puprle) but looses the light in distance, if that makes any sense to you.

    I have been looking to upgrade from the existing 4300k myself. HIDs4u.co.uk seem to be cheap

    well 2 of my mates got hid kits for there golfs, one got a 6000k and the other got a 12,000k
    and to be honnest the 12,000k looked miles better than the 6000k, you get more looks,
    yeah i know you lose light output but its still better than normal halogen bulbs eh?
    my leds have come i just need to order the xenon bulbs then i can fit them all at once!.

    12000k bulbs actually arent really any better than your halogens - they're also very very very very pink!
