D5S is the bulb type (ie H7, H4) not the power. https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/d5s-p ... -bulb.html

I know, that is why i said it comes with D5S bulb but if you look online they come with 3k output is same like h1 aftermarket hid kit from hids4u is a h1 bulb but it comes as a range of power output which is from 3k lumens if im correct in 35w depending on colour you choose.

Colour output is irrelevant in this case. The D5S that I linked to doesn’t require headlamp washers as it’s <2000lms. I’m assuming that Ford are fitting the low output xenon bulb to avoid having washers, which saves money.

[Can we use k properly when discussing xenon please? K = kelvin = light colour. Using it to describe light output power just adds confusion. Ta.]

I've just been into Evens Halshaw at Preston to buy my new Transit (130 Limited with a few extras) and been drooling over what appears to be an identical orange Sport. I would absolutely love one but it would be another £5K over mine.
I've rebuilt a Defender, several motorcycles and quite a bit to both a Mk6 & 7 Transit. Now bought a new Custom and just doing a few small bits to it.

I went in today and when I saw the breakdown I realised I was spending nearly £1200 on the sat nav and roof rack. Both these are nice to have but I only need a roof rack maybe 4 times a year and I have a sat nav already.

So I asked and the only other van they had had the LED lights in the back and a 230V socket in the front (£100 total). So basically I've saved £1100 but got a gun metal grey van instead of the blue one. It's a shame but it was a lot of money.

It's not how much you can save. More about what it's worth to you.

If you need it but don't have will an irritation that's not in money to express.
