Re: HID headlight rant
They are arc type bulbs and have no filament. They usually do not go bad unless they are shattered. I would look at the ballast as the culprit. I am still running my original cheap HID bulb now for 15 years but I have replaced the ballast. Sample pic for you.
DS2/DS3 refers to the glass part of the bulb, which ALL HID use, the plastic base that it is glued into determines if it is an H7.
