Xenon D1S bulbs.
Posted by ScottA (more from ScottA) on Sun, 12 Jan 2020 16:14:55
Getting good quality Xenon bulbs seems to be a problem lately. I purchased Osram Xeniarc's and within 5 months, one failed. Seller replaced it. 2 weeks later, the other one failed. I discovered they were counterfeit. So bought some Philips Xenon's and paid a lot for them. They too did not last. Contacted Philips and they were also identified as counterfeit. A year or so ago, I bought some LUNEX Xenon Bulbs, from E**y, shipped from the UK. These have been excellent to this point and were inexpensive. What I notice most is when my battery voltage is low, these bulbs don't flicker or complain. Planning on ordering another set as spares unless there is another source for good bulbs.
Anyway, if someone has other sources for quality D1S lamps, it would be good to know. It is apparent the Chinese are making "copies" of name brands and selling them as the real deal. One of the phony bulbs were from Am*z*n.
