Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

Best I could do tonight. Some of these pics are from the highway during stretches of road with no lights. Overexposed and overall poor quality of photos....but you can get an idea of coverage and color. I'm impressed with the amount of output over a larger area than the OEMs provided. The road signs are lit up due to the LED fogs throwing light all over the place...not due to the headlights.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

A quick question, is the housing grey are black to replace the bulbs? I see 2 for the HIDs, one is directly behind the protectors and one is to the side of it.

Thanks

Edit: Also is the JGC 2011 D2S or D1S?
A little confused on what that means? socket type?

There is a black rubber (soft) cover over the HID bulb and it would be directly behind the projector.

Bulb is a D1S, it is the bulb type.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

Thanks for sharing the pics DUC I am seriously considering these bulbs as an upgrade.

Definitely worth the upgrade in my opinion...and they haven't reached their full potential yet. The white is already an improvement for me and i'm more comfortable driving at night. No lost output and my understanding is that the output will improve slightly around 20hrs of run time.

These make up for the waste of money on fancy LED fog bulbs from xenondepot, when some inexpensive 5000k LEDs would have provided the same color and lack of useable light. Oh well...

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

I got a pair of these Philips 5000K for 89.99 shipped after an SRT8 owner recommendation. I will be installing them within 2 weeks. I wonder how they compare.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

You guys do realize that the OEM 4300K bulbs put out more usable light than these bulbs. The OEM 4300K color temperature is the closest to visable daytime sunlight. Thats why all OEM manufactures use a 4300K bulb. A 5500K color temp. bulb of the same size and power will produce less white and more blue light. It says so so right on the box! These bulbs will reduce lumen output as compared the OEM 4300K color temp. bulbs. They may look cool, but in fact will perform worse, and in bad weather the bluer light will diminish your ability to see as compared to the OEM 4300K bulbs.

These bulbs aren't really an upgrade performance wise. If bluer light with less lumens, and decreased poor wheather visability is what your after then these might be for you.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

Sunlight is 5500 Kelvin (5000K is direct sunlight at noon). Pro photo studio lights are set to 5500K whitebalance when looking to achieve natural light. The difference between 4300 and 5000 is minimal, while gaining a more white/natural daylight color. It's not like the original poster is switching to 6000K or higher. JMHO

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

Pro photo studios are indoors & artifically lit and have nothing to do with automobile lighting reqirements at night in the real world. The reason all OEM manufacturers use 4300K OEM bulbs is because it produces the closest thing to direct sunlight for the human eye, under most conditions.

Sunlight can vary from 3250K at sunrise to 6500K at noon on a cloudy day to 8000K at noon in the Northern hemisphere.

Sunlight color temperature chart

The higher the color temp equates to less white and more blue light just like your chart above shows. Not really sure the 4300K pic is as yellow as depicted, though.

4300K bulb output produces more lumens than a 5500K bulb of the same size & power. And at night in bad weather the 4300K bulb that is closer to the yellow end of the color temp. scale will be vastly superior for the human eye than a 5500K bulb with its bluer light.

But if bluer light is what you want because it looks cooler to you, mod away, it's your Jeep Just don't go near the 6000~8000K bulbs that would really diminish the useable light output of your HID's.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

CBIs have the same lumen rating as the OEMs...in some cases, they have measured higher than the 3200lm that are standard in the 4300k OEM bulbs.

CBI
XENARC COOL BLUE INTENSE

OEM (these are the actual bulbs I pulled out of the headlights)
XENARC ORIGINAL

Check the technical data, both are 3200 lm. Never hurts to do a little research before referencing old info.

I've also heard that some brands are using OEM 5000k bulbs...possibly CBI's manufactured for OEM. Mercedes and BMW are the ones i've heard. When I have more time to look i'll grab some info.

Re: Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!

Here are some pretty good pictures comparing stock to 5000k. This is in a Lexus but thought that it would give you guys a good idea of the difference:





The 5000k bulbs used in the pics above are D4S bulbs but our D1S HID bulbs will have the same color and light output. Coupon code JGD1S gets you a $20 discount per bulb.

Are you saying your 5000k bulbs will have the same color and output of the CBIs? Or are you just saying your D1S bulbs have the same color and output as the pics you posted?
