Euro Headlights? You can buy the replicas or the real JDM headlights.

You can access it if you have small enough hands. If you struggle with changing d2s bulbs, then changing side markers might be impossible due to very tight spaces.

To change side markers, just turn the socket and pull out. If you have a bulb that fell in there, then I really think you need to take out the headlight because it's hard enough just removing the socket

Stupid question, after swapping the bulbs, should I re-aim the headlight?

Just put in some 6000K DDM tuning D2S bulbs and my cut off isn't align nicely at all. There is a straight line but there so many hot spots.

I get the same issue, but this is on my JDM headlight. My cut off would almost always be off after changing bulbs. I just adjust it afterwards.

I put the oem bulbs back on and the cut off is back to it's sharp look. I guess it was just the crappy DDM tuning bulbs, I swear nowadays with DDM tuning you never know what kind of bulbs you'll be getting.

DDM tuning is garbage.

Ordered a set of 6K Morimotto Bulbs from TRS, hopefully those will be a better set than the DDM tuning bulbs.
I am currently running 5000k Morimotos and they aren't too bad :tu2:

So I tried using like a mini flat head screwdriver, a t20 torx bit and the damn screw wouldnt come off. Then I noticed that there is like a metal pin that is blocking the torx bit from letting me get it off. How do I take the screw off?
I was getting ready to do the replacement this past weekend and noticed that my 2004 uses a "tamper proof" T20 Torx screw. I didn't try a flathead screwdriver. I ordered a tamper proof Torx socket. Always fun to buy a new tool....

correct me if i'm wrong... but,

All you need to buy is a D2S bulb right ? you dont need the hold kit with ballast+bulb.

and i actually had DDM Tuning HID headlights (H1) and HID fogs (H3) in the past for my prelude, they actually worked wonders. maybe DDM just sucks at D2S haha

If you want to just replace the bulb, then that's all you need, a D2S bulb.

What bulbs are preferred? I saw some OSRAM available but priced around $140 for 2, I'd be willing to pay extra if there is a big difference in quality compared to cheaper brands.

My drivers side light is noticeably more yellowish in color then passenger side, might have been replaced by a previous owner or is just aged.....it's annoying to see lol.
