I brought an 01 Lexus IS300 in July. When I was driving the car yesterday, the passenger side bulb went out. I seached the fourm, and know I have to get the D2R bulb. My question though is what temp are the stock bulbs (6k, 8k)? I went over to pep boys and they quoted me $125 installed for one bulb :suspiciou . Please help a fellow IS member out..


Thanks for your time!

BTW I never posted my car here so heres a quick pic.

Nice ride. Looks like a former .Netters ride, forget his name though.

Anyway, stock bulb temp is 4300K. That price is too much for one bulb. You can get a pair of quality bulbs for that price.

I would get two, because even if you get 4300 bulbs they will be different in color due to the age of the other bulb.

get some off ebay for like $70 for both bulbs. I have had them for over 8 months with no problems.

Well, it turns on but the color turns orange/yellowish then it goes off in like 2 mins.

Switching bulbs is a good idea, its just that to get the driver side headlight bulb out is gonna be a pain, I'd like to aviod that. I mean I might have to, but if someone else experienced the same issue, they could tell me if its the bulb or something else.

Thanks!
