Cool [DIY E92 M3] D2 High-Kelvin HID Burner with D1 Ignitor Socket

Hello, M3 Fighter Pilots!!

There are a lot of color variations of D2 burners at present. But, there aren't much choices of D1 burner yet.

So, I try to install High-Kelvin D2 burner using the "D1 Ignitor Socket" to my M3 Coupe.


This is "D1 Ignitor Socket" sold from BELLOF.


This is heat-resisting paint for incinerator, muffler and so on. It can endure up to 500 degrees.


Mask the D2 burner by a masking tape, and paint it.


This is the "High-Wattage" ballast which I improved.

(Details about the "High-Wattage" ballast, see this explanation.)

In order to volatilize the thinner ingredients, make the "Blue-Painted" D1 burner burn up without attaching the headlamp unit. I call this process "pre-burning".


The right side is BMW genuine D1 burner made by Philips, and the left side is the "Blue-Painted" D1 burner after "pre-burning" process.

(Details about the "Blue-Painted" burner, see this explanation.)


This picture shows the difference of both D1 burners.


The BMW genuine D1 burner looks like "Yellow-White", and the "Blue-Painted" D1 burner looks like "Violet-White".

What do you look?

Using the "D1 Ignitor Socket", you can install a lot of color variations of D2 burners.

Why does the thought of roman candles or a "car fire" come to mind? I'll wait for the 6mo update, but innovative idea though +1 for that!

So all that effort went into getting less light output. I don't get it. It might look better but you've just reduced your light output by about 20%.

okay here we go... i like the color of the bluer one.... so i'll do it. if you DONT, then DONT

we all know the higher ont he Kš scale we go, the less light output, we know, we know....

whatever, we do what we like... just like i can say your e90 on order isn't really a cool car. But that's subjective, so scratch that hehe. Point is, many of the things we put on our cars do nothing but make them LOOK cooler.


but all in all.. cool idea, just watch for overheating of the actual housing itself now. and like ^^ said, i'll wait for the 6mo update

cheers!

rice isn't about "output".... it's about living your life a 1/4 mile at a time
