OEM is 4300K. This gives the maximum light output. As the color temp rises, light output decreases.

Hello guys,
I think some one said earlier that my stock xenon bulb temp rating is 4300 K, others said no I can not tell unless I open and check the bulb itself. I have done some research trying to fine a video showing or writing telling the way of removal of the light bulb but I did not get any. Please , could some one here over any help, Thanks.

Open bonnet, you will see round latch at each corner above the headlights. Open that (turn sideways - if I remember correctly) and bulbs are just there. 2 second job - very easy access.

Hi artiras,
Here are what I have found under the bonntes , one access is for the Angel lights that is H8 bulb and the other one is the access for the intelligent light sensor if I am correct. I could not locate the D1S bulb yet. My high and low peams are under one light projector, the inside lens is for the intelligent light sensor. Below are some pictures .

Hi, sorry I didn't understand your question properly. Now, I didn't not change d1 bulb, but I would assume it should be accessible through one of hatches. Please see picture of parts drawing, suggesting same location.
