    I think they've updated both projectors now, and I think the D2S is supposed to be slightly better light now (especially because the available bulbs are better), and the Mini H1 is slightly easier/smaller to fit in. I think the takeaway is that either is pretty easy to retrofit (once you get the lens off) and either has far better light than stock or euro reflectors.

    Hi Gearhead, this is a long shot but do you have a good source for d2s lamps? Any particular you can recommend?

    I have used the old DDM tuning stuff that has worked well, but apparently their quality has gone downhill a lot since then. I have a set of VVME HIDs in one of the cars that works well, and they sell D2S setups. Stepping up in price and quality, TheRetrofitSource sells some good stuff. Most recently, I bough a Volt setup from XenonDepot, and those have also been very good. I'd say for the money vs. performance, the Volt setup is a good bet.
