    Posted: 06áMará2016 at 10:11pm
Hi All, I'm wanting to do some more light upgrades to the QQ. As much as I love the Xenons, I would like to upgrade them to 6000k bulbs.

Does anyone have info to hand on what the bulbs are? Are Xenon bulbs a standard fitment across makes?

Thanks,
Ant

Appears they are D2S bulbs... now to figure out how to get the ignitor off the back of the original bulbs. 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Ant

Don't they just pull off? Rubber seal, and then electrical connector .

I've looked into it a lot more and have come to the conclusion that the J10 Tekna has D1S Bulbs, which have the igniter attached. While these are similar to D2S bulbs, the D2S doesn't have the igniter attached. So I've a set of these to use as paper weights now.

Removal seems pretty simple if you look on YouTube for Saab and a few other makes who run the D1S bulbs.

The bulbs are D2R, i had to replace mine last week as one bulb had turned a nice shade of pink! All xenon bulbs have an igniter attached. The D2R have a anti glare coating on top of the bulb whereas the D2S bulbs dont.

'R' bulbs are for reflector lenses, the Facelift QQ has projector lenses.

Mk1 QQ - D2R
Facelift - D1S

From what I can gather, the D2 differs from the D1 by way of being able to separate them from the ignitor.
