    Question D2S vs D2R Philips light bulb

    What is difference between Philips 85122 D2S and Philips 85126 D2R?
    Will D2R fit in D2S light housing and perform as same D2S? Thanks,

    You can cut a notch to make it fit...but D2R is for reflector, thus have a shield..blocking out light so for projector it's best to use D2S.

    yes you can fit the d2r in d2s projectors by notching the base.. the output will decrease with the d2r though

    and similarly, you can use the D2S bulbs in a D2R reflector with the proper notching (I did lol).

    Won't that cause glare?

    I think the Priuses with the D2R reflectors are blinding enough as it is. Sometimes I wonder if Prius owners are swapping in D2S bulbs.

    well since it is not projectors, there is a normal amount of glare with either bulb. I found that the reflector was designed to point the light where it needed to go, and the unblocked light didn't make a difference (as the HID is not brighter).

    Here's a pic.... an old d2r 4300k bulb on the left, and a new 5000K d2s on the right (keep in mind that the new bulb should be brighter anyway since it is new)
