D1S bulbs
 
Hellow,

I ordered a set of D1S 6000K to replace the stock ones and I have a few questions :
1. The D1S is used for both high and low beam. Then why they called low beam ones?
Here is what I ordered: 6000K Bulbs HID Xenon Low Beam Headlight Pair 2 Bulb D1S D1R D1C 6000 k 6K White | eBay
The name is 6000K Bulbs HID Xenon Low Beam Headlight Pair 2 Bulb D1S D1R D1C 6000 k 6K White
Will it not work when I switch to the high beam? Do I need some othe D1S bulbs that are both low and high?
2. In the instructions you need to unplug the battery, why? Is it necessary?
3. Is the 6000K legal in Canada Ontario?

Thanks a lot!

D1S is correct and will provide both high and low. Disconnecting batt is a safety precaution. I have not done that in previous vehicles or the jgc...with no issues. Up to you on that one.

This is correct. the single bulb performs both high and lo beam functions. When you engage the high beams a shade/filter moves out of the way of the bulb to give it it's full brightness. During normal low beam operation this filter/shade is placed in front of the bulb to "dim" it. (I actually think it just adjusts the cutoff of the beam but am not completely certain on that)
