55 Watt D2S Headlights

Postby The Brat 61 » Mon Apr 05, 2021 10:10 am

Can I replace my stock 35-watt D2R bulbs with 55-watt D2R bulbs and use the original ballasts on my 07 Murano or, do I need to change the ballasts? The bulbs are supposed to be "Plug and Play", with no modifications needed.
Thank you in advance,
The Brat

Nissan ballasts and igniters are all Matsushita and will generally handle 55W without issues. Your header says D2S and don't do that, S bulbs are for projector lamps and have a substantially different beam pattern from R's. They won't work well in a reflector-type housing.
