Mazda 3 2010 Hid lights

okay so what i need to know is, i bought hid's for my car the bulb is D2S. I got the whole kit for it(ballasts) but in my car right now i got 2 different bulbs but in the drives manual it said xexon lights were D2S. Basically my question is, is the D2S bulb still gonna work in my car or is it gonna mess up the entire thing?

Then you have the wrong bulbs. D2S bulbs fit the factory HID headlights. You need the bulb that's appropriate for the halogens. Where did you get your HID kit?

Personally, get the bulbs from somewhere else. DDM's bulbs are shite.

Here's my rec.

Bulb temperature is up to you, I prefer 5000K for pure white without any blue.

Also make sure your headlights are pointing in the right direction ie: not blinding others on the road, you can get pulled over for that now . Just a heads up man.
