hi i bought some 6k hids, d2r from ebay which had a pic of d2r , but i have received d2s .

i heard d2r is for reflection in projector (for civics) and d2s is straight shine forward (gives brighter impression)

but will the d2s still physically fit my civic ? i heard theres a notch or something toi prevent it being fit into wrong socket . otherwise im gonna have to go bacfk to the seller

They will fit as they're still a D2 fitment. They may dazzle oncoming traffic though. I'd send them back and get the proper ones.

Function
D2S -- discharge second generation shielded -- bulbs are specifically designed for projector headlamps. Projection headlamps contain a shade positioned between the lens and reflector. Light projection from the top edge of the shade provides the low beam cut off, and facilitates a high beam of light without glare. D2R -- discharge second generation reflection -- bulbs, on the other hand, are used in reflector headlamps. Reflector headlamps contain a light source, such as an arc, positioned near the focus of a parabolic reflector, which helps reflect the glare caused by vehicle headlights in oncoming traffic.

Fitment
D2S and D2R bulbs feature differences at the bulb base for fitment reasons. The two fitment notches on the D2S are spaced nearly twice as far apart to fit into the projector headlamp configuration. D2R notches are spaced more closely to fit into reflector headlamps.

Paint
D2R bulbs are painted with a black stripe around the sides of the bulb capsule in order to reflect glare. D2S HID bulbs are unpainted.
