What is a D2R bulb? If these do fit our halogen cases, I may just get a set of these bulbs(yes I have ballasts :))

D2R bulbs are the ones made for cars with reflective housings... such as ours. D2S are for projector housings. At least that's what I remember.

huskyboy, if you do decide to get an hid kit with a DSR bulb, i wouldn't recommend it. Your beam pattern will be completly messed up, the light source will not line up with where the original (halogen bulb) was.

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at though, sounds like you just want the bulbs

Long live conversion kits...:D

D2R & D2S bulbs are for cars that come from the factory with HIDS... you cant just put those bulbs in any car.. you would have to have a lamp housing that fits those bulbs.. now if you had HID's from the factory, you could buy those bulbs.. but otherwise you are going to have to buy a H1 HID kit...

if you got your car off the lot with HIDS then yes you can use a D2R bulb.. if you have standard halogens then you will need a H1 HID conversion kit
