d2s/d2r are the same EXACT bulbs. d2r's just happens to have a coating/shield on the bulb that are made for Reflector type headlights ie. Tl's are reflector type they come with d2r bulbs, same with gs400's. Now for d2s bulbs, they dont have the shielding on the bulbs...and are made for BMW, Benz... Keep in mind that d2s/d2r are all OEM spec bulbs. They all have a rating of 4100/4300k. Phillips also makes the Ulitron(sp?) kit that is rated at 6000k.

I like OEM kits much better than aftermarket kits because you know the bulbs you are getting have to be Phillips or Osram Sylvannia because they're the only ones who distribute bulbs to car manufacturers. Most aftermarket hid kits are made in korea/china and come with some Sh!tty bulbs with coating on it to give you that 6000k, 7000k, 9000k color, and with that coating it defeats the purpose of having HID's because it decreases the light output and shortens the life of the hid bulbs. Xenon gases are what produces the color in the hid bulbs, so make sure the bulbs u guys buy are clear.

Also, there are no such thing as High/low beam d2r/d2s bulbs. The only high beam hid's are the Bi-xenon kit that are equiped in some cars. They use some kind of shield mechanism that lowers and raises the gates to change the reflection of the light causing it to beam higher and lower for the highs/lows.
