Bulbs on Litronic

Recommended Posts

Actually it is 5000K. Look at the bulb - 4300K is 85122 (very old model), 5000K is 85123 (they stop making them - color is blue/purple). The most current bulb is Philips 85122+. It is called colormatch. The newest one that will not fit our lights is D4S. Instead of 35W they use 55W.

I would say 85122+ is between 85122 and 85123. It's not blue/purple but not as white as 4300K.

Bulb 85122+ is to match your old 85122. So if one of your 4 years old 85122 died, you would buy 85122+. The best are 85123 and it is almost impossible to get. It takes me more than 7 months to buy one.

What I would do if I were, I would buy philips 85122+ or osram xenarc (PAIR). Osrams change color really nice (hint of purple). You probably've seen acura's headlights.

Or if you have enough patience start looking for used 85123. Belive me it is worth it. If anyone is interested I have one spare 85123 - blue (look at Honda S2000) - just pm me. I left purples for myself.

One more thing. Make sure to buy both bulbs from the same car. 85122 bulbs you can get on ebay for $20 a pair, 85122+ and xenarc around $40-60 a pair and the most expensive one is 85123 around $50 per bulb.

DON'T BUY A NEW ONES - waste of money
