4100k - 4300k I believe.

The Mazda 3's Xenons are at 4100k.

I'm so roundhouse!

Yes the stock HID's are usually between 4100 and 4300, however since they are actually brighter than 8000K's I don't think the 8000's really attract that much attention. Also, the blue is not like a police cruiser blue, its still so white it only looks blue from certain angles.

Here is a pic of mine at night, I will take a better pic soon.

you will be fine with 4100/4300k or the 6000k...they will blend in with the bmw/mercedes crowd...

don't forget...our headlights physically say "H1" or "DS2" right on the clear lens if you pop the hood...Even though the bulbs are DS2 rebased as H1, show that DS2 to a cop given you problems and they should then leave you alone...they won't know.

ok now i have another question...

xenon depot is selling "xtreme HID" brand 8K kit for 299.99. Now ive never heard of the company but on ebay, there is a McCulloch 8K kit for the same price. I know many of you have the McCulloch kit and the name is trusted. Just wondering what you guys would do if youre in the market for an HID kit.

check out the link. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7914844018

well...i bought the 8000K kit from Xenondepot made by Xtreme. I talked to Scott from Xenondepot before I purchased from them and he told me that Xtreme is the same company as Xenondepot with just a different name. My thoughts on the kit...theyre bright as hell and they look soooo good...the installation was a bitch though because Scott leglected to tell me about the little connectors that came with the kit. The kit is not specifically made for our car...more for a honda or acura which has those little connectors. Anyway, I ended up having to make new grounding wires and stuff just to get it installed...but honestly, the 10 hour installation was worth the effort. But at the same time, if i had to do it all over again knowing about connector problem with the 8000K kit, i would have just gone with the 6000K from Xenondepot.

Best of luck

2004 Mazda6s 5 Speed Manual Lapis Blue Metallic
