Hello
I’d like to upgrade the headlights on my wife’s car as they are dull.
She currently has Philips D5S 12V 25W fitted.

Can anyone advise of an upgrade we can fit?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sadly it seems that D5S is the entry level Xenon bulb and not many manufacturers make it besides Phillips. They may make a better bulb in the range but I suspect not.

It seems D5S is a low wattage Xenon combi (driver, ballast and bulb in one) so I doubt you would swap up without having to ensure the wiring loom can supply a more substantial feed - if indeed that was possible.

If you have a local specialist nearby or a local auto electrician you could have a chat to see what your options are, bearing in mind any changes might then cause warranty issues.

Have a read here: https://www.philips.co.uk/p-m-au/au...the-entry-into-premier-league-of-car-lighting

Good luck,

Hewesy
