    Hello,
    I see today that my left xenon have yellow color and not white as right.. I think I need new pair of xenon bulbs. I can not find here what type H1, H7.. or something as DS1 DS2 I need.
    Can you help me please?
    and what about light color..
    I have white xenon so I think there is 6000K, have somebody 12000K xenon? I read somewhere tahat this is best to drive at night... and with xenon color about 8500K is very bad visiblity.
    Thank you.

    The bulb type is D2S. factory standard bulbs are 4300k, im running 6000k and they offer maximum white light with a tint of blue.

    Not sure if you are aware or not, but the higher the K rating the less light output you get so 12,000k will give you rubbish visibility, the 6,000k will be just right

    Ok I will buy 6000 K ;-)
    I disconnect connector from bulb, but I can not take out bulb. Around bulb is black ring and I do not know what to do with it.

    Just twist it then it will pull off, you can then pull the bulb out.
