I have a pair of Osram HID bulbs, rating at 4300K (the brightes one, used by all auto maker). They're D2R type (used in Xenon reflector headlight). They have been used for about 5-10 hours. I just bough a xenon set for my car and sellerseller ran out of D2S bulbs and put in D2R instead, however, my car has projector so I had to purchase a set of D2S bulbs separately ($$$$ !!!).
This is the OEM type bulbs, made in Germany (only Osram and Philips are used as OEM xenon bulb on all German and high-end Japanese cars). It is only for xenon on Mercedes year 2002 or earlier. Again, if your car has xenon, and headlight is reflector-type, this is the bulb that it uses. If it's 2003 or later (xenon light is projector type), you will need the type D2S.
Since I have no need for the bulbs, I'm letting they go cheap: $50 shipped within US. Reputable site like suvlights.com charge $150 for the pair, and dealer quote $250 for them. If your xenon bulbs are old or out of sync, get them for replacement or backup.
