HID Bulbs

Anyone have D2R bulbs on their car? Does it actually reduce glare ?

d2r is for reflectors thats made for hid such as older GS, TL etc etc.

no real way to reduce glare *I assume on your 8th gen civic* on your car.

D2R bulbs are for OEM HID reflector housings as !Aznboi128 said. Assuming you want to reduce glare on your halogen reflector housing, what you need is casper shields. Or just do a retrofit.

Well its not really for me. More for my gf cause she just bought a 8th gen, and shes use to the HID look cause she drove my TSX for a bit

Where could I source out one of those casper shields.

Hidexpert.

However I used those in my g20 before doesn't help all that much ap I ended up getting a retrofit.

You can get mini h1 from theretrofitsource.com.
It's about 180 with shipping if you already have hid kit and it's pretty simple to install.

You can also look around HidPlanet, you can easily pick up a pair of Lexus Rx330 or similiar for around $130 or less.

Replace OEM fresnal lens with clear lens, make a custom curve shield and you're golden. Output equivalent or better than TSX's OEM projectors.

Here's a complete 8th gen Civic Mini H1 retrofit guide if you consider doing it.

There are many bright halogen bulbs out there, but I think Osram Silverstars takes the cake.
