    best D2S bulb

    im wondering everyones opinion on the best D2S bulbs for the E55 (i got the old osram 66040 D2S bulbs in my impreza theyve got a nice few houres on them now considering they are my first retrofits set of bulbs from a E55 bug eye impreza retrofit back in 2003) so these are considerably dim compared to new bulbs (i parked next to a mazda 3 (2012 OEM xenon) and mine were dim me and that owner swapped bulbs to find out if it was my projectors but no his were dim as mine were and mine were WAY brighter (i swapped out the D4S ballasts on my JDM headlights to D2S versions from the OEM headlights due to it being hard to find D4S replacements after one failed due to a faulty bulb) so now im looking for a nice set of D2S bulbs any opinions its bad when halogen projectors can over power your HIDs


    projectors in use are nissan maxima D2S E55s with a cleared lense (cleared at a glass shop)

    OEM matsushita ballasts (gen 6 i think i dont remember LOL)

    koito bulbs are an option though they have a purple tint

    i dont mind any bulbs brand but i just need a good bright set of bulbs because its shameful to have such dim bulbs LOL

    Most likely TRS or a TRS re-seller.
