New Guy here just trying to upgrade my Headlight bulbs.

I gotta 2012 G37x sedan and bought some switchbacks id like to install also with some city lights, but I want to change out my headlight bulbs. Are there any LEDSís that work for them?? because I canít find any Dual Beams with the bulb size I need. Do I have to buy a HID kit to upgrade?

AFAIK they are already HID bulbs. At least my 2012 coupe is and when checking the Sylvania bulb replacement guide the only option is HID and it doesn't specify coupe or sedan.

Same with DD but they specify coupe/sedan.

Yes, all G's have HIDs from the factory.

Re-posting what I just put in another thread below this one:
General consensus is that the Osram 66240 CBI are one of the best bulbs to upgrade to. I love mine and I have had them for over 2 1/2 years with no issues.

Our bulbs are HID. The part number is D2S. I just replaced mine today with the 66240cbi.

If you are going to install the switchbacks, you tap into the green/black and the white/black wire.

leave the green/white wire alone!!!

the best upgrade for your d2s in my opinion is the phillips xtreme 4800k, do some research on youtube there are some good comparison videos to the stock phillips and even the new higher lumens osrams super d2s bulbs the osram cbb
