There is no such thing as a D4R bulb. D2R (which is on the R) and D2S bulbs use the same connector and pretty much any HID equipped car out uses the same connector.

My guess, the ballast is made by Osram.

The overall assembly is Valeo. I am not sure who supplies their sub components.

The company mention to me that the D4R bulb can only work on Philips and Hella Ballast. In this case, I don't think this will work.
