350z HID Bulb Upgrades

350z HID Bulbs

Upgrade your factory xenon bulbs with more stylish colors.

Does your Nissan 350z come with the optional xenon headlight package from the factory? The early year 350z, from 2003 until 2005, came with an optional HID low beam and a halogen high beam. If it didn’t come with facotry HID lows, then it had both high and low beam halogen lights. The later years, 2006+, came with only one style of headlights that employed a bi-xenon projector headlight. I just want to talk about the 350z cars that came with factory xenon bulbs.

All years and sub-models of the 350z came with projector headlights. The early style was single beam (using one bulb for high and one bulb for low) and the later years headlights came with dual beam xenon (one bulb did both high and low beam), but it doesn’t matter what year your 350z is, they all used the same bulb, it’s called a D2S, which is a very common OEM style xenon bulb.

Showing the difference between early and later style Nissan 350z Headlight designs. The later style is far superior to the earlier style because it uses a much higher quality projector and bi-xenon technology.

It is very common for people to change out their factory xenon D2S bulbs with aftermarket bulbs for a few reasons. First off, sometimes even xenon bulbs will go bad after years of faithful service. It is far less expensive to replace the lights with aftermarket bulbs. Secondly, many enthusiasts prefer a more white, blue or golden hue to the light, and Philips nor Sylvania offer any color of OEM style bulbs than 4,300K. GTR Lighting offers an OEM HID bulb for the Nissan 350z in different colors, and that can handle a higher wattage ballast.

Today it is possible to get a 350z OEM HID bulb in colors from 3,000K up to 12,000K.

4×6 Projector Headlight Housing Options

Single Beam LED head lamps

Today several options are available to upgrade your 4×6 headlights.

In the world of automobile customizing and upgrading, it is not uncommon to find a vehicle that uses a set of 4×6, or 165mm rectangular, headlights. It is common on older vehicles, like the short-lived Ford Mustang SVO, or the Ford Probe to use this type of headlight in a dual-beam sealed beam headlight that does both high beam and low beam. Then there’s other vehicles like many Peterbilt semi-trucks that use 4 different 4×6 headlights, 2 for low beam and 2 for high beam. No matter which configuration you have, it’s one of the favorite parts of the vehicle to modify for either style or performance. In this post I will discuss the different options that are available right now.

1. JW Speaker 8800 LED Headlights

The 4×6 LED Head Lamps by JW Speaker are model number 8800 and available in a high beam style or low beam style. These are designed to be able to be used in a 4-headlight system common in older cars and tractor trailers like Peterbilts and Kenworth trucks. These are the nicest, best performing and most expensive 4×6 headlights on the market. They utilize two D-Shaped LED projectors on the sides and one LED projector in the middle. Normally these would be used by purchasing two pairs, one pair for low beam and one pair for high beam, but it is possible to use these as a single beam headlight for a passenger car.

The JW Speaker 8800 LED headlight is the best option on the market but is also the most expensive.

2. GTR Lighting Tru-Projector 4×6 Headlights

The 4×6 projector/halo headlights by GTR Lighting are a great, inexpensive option that will allow you to use an H3 halogen bulb or an H3 single beam HID system. These headlights have a pretty decent light output, with a sharp cutoff and different colors available for the halo. These headlights look great and work even better. Perfect for show or increased light output, but also offers increased visibility and new technology style. The GTR Lighting 4×6 Projector headlights are a great, economical option that are easy to install and look great.

3. Starr HID Projector with LED Accents

The 165mm / 4×6 projector headlights from Starr Lighting utilize a high quality 9005 style single beam projector housing with 6 LED accent lights around the outside of each projector. These headlights have a very unique look and are one of the most inexpensive projector headlights you can find in this style.

4. Starr HID 4×6 Quad HID Headlights

Last, and certainly not least, is the 4-lamp set by Starr HID. This is a truly unique system because it is super high quality, but is not suitable for pop-up headlights due to the deep design of the housing lens. The projectors used in the Starr HID housings are so incredible, that they are bigger than any other projector housing on the market. But they are great if you have fixed-headlights that do not go up and down.

The Starr HID XP4656 projector headlights utilize high quality GTR Lighting HID ballasts and OEM style HID bulbs. Also, they come with high power halogen 9005 bulbs for the high beam, which can also be upgraded to an HID system by using a conversion kit. This is a great system if you are looking for the best of the best, and can use it.
