    today mine left side low beam has blown...
    so next i want to change booth of hid's...
    My car is a Signum, 1.9 '05 with Factory fitted xenon adn AFL lights.
    Can someone advice what type of bulb i need (i think it is a D2S one) and also which brand of the bulbs to choice and also which COLOR i must search (for better light on foggy and rainy weather)?
    To change the D2S bulb i need to take off the entire headlight?

    And also on this way i want to change the HIGH BEAM bulbs too (with a better LIGHT)...there which type of bulbs i need?(H1 or H7) and also can you recomend me which brand to use there too?

    Thanks in advance...
    Regards,
    M a x

    D2s I believe light unit has to come out yes. I would recommend 6k for a slight blue tinge.

    as for a matching high beam go for 80w ring sportz blue
    Its only halogen bulb I've found that comes any where near hid white
