I was a skeptic myself so I figured let me help people decide. Of course it looks much brighter and bluer in person:

4200k vs. 6000k

Geez BlackShadow, thanks for using my bone stock TL as a comparison :D But worry no more, I just got a parcel notice in the mail today, as expected and waited for the past week! :mad: I'll be picking them up tomorrow, and they are going into my car the very same day. :beerchug:

For all those skeptics out there, the 6000k is well worth the money. I didn't expect them to really look this good. Keep in mind though, they are bluer and more purple than the pictures can show. Then of course, I think 6ktypes 6000k low beam + 6000k fog is THE king :angel: I was following him on the way back to toronto. His headlights are blinding!! It's not so much the low beam, but the fogs! MY GOSH!! I almost could drive next to him with my lights off :D

I'm glad your 6000k finally came in.:D Don't forget to post pics of them on.

And this goes to prove that the D2S is brighter cause the fogs are D2S and the low beams are D2R.

not necessarily. it greatly depends on how the housing is designed too. different designs would yeild different beam and light pattern.

for example, i have 02 tls, and i tried to put both the d2r bulbs in the low beam and the 9006 fogs housing. if you are close to the car, you will see that the fog seems to be much brighter than the low beam. but if you are far away, the low beam wins

oh, but i have to agree that d2s IS brighter than the d2r when you talk about the bulbs solely. it's due to the fact that d2s doesn't have that black metal on the bulb.
