So after cracking my headlights in a minor fender bender, I decided that it was time for an upgrade from the mini H1s. While the h1s were certainly a huge improvement over stock, I craved more. From the front photos, my car looks very similar as I used the same IRIS shroud - however, the h1s use a 2.5" lens versus the d2s 3" lens and up close these things do look a lot bigger.
The new retro is so much brighter! A lot more usable output (the h1s have a lot of foreground light) and the width is impressive. A lot of this also has to do with a higher quality bulb as well.
Projectors: mini d2s 3.0
Bulb: Philips Xtreme Vision (85122XV) at 4800K
Ballast: Original Morimoto 3Five
