Has anyone replaced their d3s bulbs? How hard is it? Thinking about replacing the stocks with CBIs.

Its not bad, tricky if you have short/fat fingers. I found it easier to just pull the headlamp (which its just two bolts and disconnecting the harness) and then sit with the headlight in my lap. CBI's are nice, thats what i am running. bit brighter and whiter than stock

Be aware of the cheap bulbs giving lackluster or inconsistent performance. This testing is on a d2s bulb lineup but the principal is the same regarding d3s and money spent on said bulbs.

I agree - watched a bunch of videos and reviews - they're still excellent for the price!

Just upgraded my fogs too

The projector does a great job with the pattern

More than likely you lost intensity of your hot spot, that's more or less what I was asking about.
