Q5 Bixenon Lens inquiry - Halogen?

Hi Guys,
It's been a while for me I guess. Too much travel leaving less time to play around with the Jeep.

Some may already know I retrofitted projectors couple of months back and now it's time for a registration renewal.

I went in and no surprise it failed because of the HIDS. They said I need to install Halogen bulbs.

Taking the headlights out and installing the originals is going to be a pain especially that a few of my bumper clips are broken from a minor accident so anything that evolves putting in the OEM Lights is gonna result in a paint job!

Are there any halogen bulbs out there that'll fit just so I can pass by inspection? The current are D2S.

Thanks, I've searched everywhere and didn't find an answer. If none here then that means I gotta go the long and expensive way. Thanks

I'd love to help but I can't figure out exactly what it is that you are asking.......

I've read your post 4 times;

It sounds like you are looking for Halogen bulbs that will fit into your HID projector housings for a quick and easy swap and if that's what you're looking for - I highly doubt you will find them.

Those HID housings are custom designed for your HID projectors bulbs which I'm sure have different dimensions/threads/fittings than the stock halogen bulbs.

Hi thanks for the response. That's exactly what I'm looking for only. This is only to pass the inspection and then swap them back to my D2S HIDs.

All what they care about is seeing a Non HID bulb coming out of the projector and nothing else.

That's what I thought - and like I said in the quote above, highly unlikely.

Thought so. Thanks, went old school removed the bumper, changed back to the OEM headlights. Now waiting on the oem fog lights, the old ones were busted and the ones I got on are LEDS.

Once in I'll swap those and off to the inspection.

I have been kicking around changing out my fog lights over to LED's, they are the only lights I have left that are not LED's.

I have already replaced my fog lights once about 6 months or so after I bought my XK - before I started the LED switch-over, so, they are still like brand new - which is why I am hesitant to replace them.

So just a quick update and as expected had to go back to stock for the registration renewal. The upside to all of this the mod bug hit me.
After I renewed the registration I Got rid of the led fog lights made by Spyder. Put in new stock fogs with white LEDs 😁

They go great with the projectors

They look good Fadyasha.

I wound up ordering these Halo Projector fog lights - they were on sale for $58.00 for the set which is more than 50% off, so, I figured I'd give them a shot, they look pretty cool.
