Osram CBI D1S HID Bulbs!
 
Ordered a set of these and hope to get them installed this weekend. I will be having my window trim and door handles vinyl wrapped in gloss black Saturday and I plan to install the bulbs while the guy is working on the wrapping.

Huge thread about the bulbs:
New Osram D2S Bulb Xenarc Cool Blue Intense

My goal is to get a bit more light output and hopefully match the 5000k LED bulbs I put in to my fogs (which put out really no usable light).

I'll put some pics in my picture thread after I install them:

Anyone else install these CBI bulbs yet? Ive yet to read a bad review.

I guess i'll be guinea pig as no one else has installed these yet. They came in today and they are genuine osram CBI bulbs. I ordered them off Amazon and they are packaged for the american market under the Sylvania brand. The label on the bulbs is Osram and does have the correct model # for the D1S CBI bulbs.

Here are a couple pics:

Planning to install one of the bulbs during my lunch today (I work a 12 - 9 shift) and will try to snap a couple of pics if time permits and rain doesn't start falling.

Didn't get a chance to install before the rain. Hopefully tomorrow.

The bulbs are in. Gettin in there to swap em is damn tight. Will try to get some pics later when it gets a bit darker out. They are definitely whiter than the oem bulbs and output looks slightly improved. Should match my 5000k led fogs very well. Took a couple pics although it's not dark out yet. The bulbs are still burning in and from what i've heard take about 10 - 15 hrs before they'll get to the 5000k.

Very nice. How much brighter are they than the stock ones? A percentage gain?
Was it easy to change them out?
Are there other brighter choices other than these?

Thanks

The advertising is interesting...See the link. XENARC COOL BLUE INTENSE

It says 20% more light but I think this is 20% more compared to other 5000k HID bulbs. These should put out the same lumens as the oem 4300k bulbs but with a clean white light.

The process to change them out is pretty straightforward. It's getting your hands in to the tight spots to get the bulbs in and out that is challenging.

The only better choice i've seen are the Osram SVS, but they are I believe closer to stock color, but with more output.

Besides color, the fill of the light seems better. There are less hot spots and more even light throughout the beam.

Happy so

Great work- I really like the uniform white light. I may have to go this route too. :thumbsup:

Great thanks for the response, yup might go with them myself!

Thanks guys. Yes, the uniformity of the light color is fantastic. The CBIs are still a bit more yellow than fogs currently but from everything i've read, they will get whiter after about 10 hrs of burn time.

Light on the road has also been fantastic. I took it out to some dark roads last night and the light spread is so wide and consistent it's hard to realize how much they are lighting up the road until you turn off the lights!

I do wish that we had better projectors in our headlights because the cutoff the projectors produce are pretty crappy....

Can you take some nights shots of them on the road? Also, if you do figure out how to change the projectors then that would be a great upgrade

Ill try to get some road shots this weekend and find some unlit roads. My pics will likely not do the CBIs much justice as i'll be using an iPhone.

No plans to mess with the projectors...would likely require baking the headlights to get them apart.
