Steve,

my name is Cody-

I have had my HID's from xenon depot for years with no major problems.

My question for you:

I am thinking about doing a retrofit with some TSX projectors in my rsx headlights but don't want to get rid of my xenon depot kit. I know that the TSX uses the d2s bulbs in their projectors. Do you happen to know if I created a custom mount in the back of the projector housing for my current HID bulbs, would it effect the lighting from the projector? Or can I really only use D2S bulbs with the tsx projectors?

Hi spray2020,

Here is what you would need to get:

1) The TSX projector uses a D2S HID bulb meaning that the rebased HID bulbs you currently have will not work as they have been modified to fit an H1 application. As a result, I would suggest getting Philips D2S bulbs that will fit in your TSX projectors.

2) You would need to get this D2S Plug to enable the ballasts that you have to work with your new unmodified D2S bulb.

Let me know if you want to go ahead with the purchase and I will do my best to help you out.

Thank you Steve for the response.

Can I get these bulbs and adaptors through xenon depot?

I work at an advance auto parts so I figure getting the bulbs from my store would be easiest?

What about the adaptors? How much are they?

Hey,

No problem. You can certainly get the bulbs and adaptors directly from us. Check what your pricing is like on Philips 4300k D2S bulbs though. I doubt it would be better than our MSRP.

Here is the link to the adaptors:

Definitely go for a 6000k HID kit if you want more useable light output. When it comes to color temperature, higher temperature HID kits give you more color but less actual useable light output.

Make sure you type in coupon code "CRSXHU" upon checkout to save $25 and to get your free modified X clips.

Can you get yellow HID bulbs? I really want some yellow ones to match the yellow fog lights i just bought.I have an HID low beam kit already in the car so could I just paint the bulbs yellow? I don't really know anyhting about HID's obviously.

Absolutely. You just need to make sure to use coupon code "CRSXHU" upon checkout to save $25 on your order and to ensure we include the modified X clips which are required when installing any HID kit in the Acura RSX.

Steve - I just ordered on Saturday. Order#: 14623. I don't think I mentioned anything about the X Clips, can you see if it's not too late to get them on there?

Also, was there something about gloves?

Thanks! I'm really excited to get the kit!

Also, I noticed that that particular kit does not come with Philips bulbs. Is there a major difference? Can a guy get a hold of Philips bulbs to work with this system?


Thanks again!
