Hey I want to put HID in when I return from Iraq. Thing is I have no idea what kind is good nor what size do I need. Forgive me for not using the search but time is limited to 30 min per visit to the internet. Any help would be great.

You'll need a H1 kit. As far as color temp, its your personal preference. I have a 6000K and its just right for me. Pics don't really show the difference unless youre looking at the 8000Ks. Everything else just looks bright white. Install is fairly straightforward, I had a hard time finding the 2nd oem connector for the bulb. Oh yeah, finding a place for the passenger side ballast is a biatch too. Good luck.

I'm very very close to getting an HID kit, but I'm having a difficult time deciding between some level of 4000K or if I wanna go with 6000k. I've seen multiple websites with demos, videos, and pictures of the two different temperatures. Besides price, I think that I wanna go with the 6000k because I like the blueish output from them. My dad has a Nissan Murano with HID's and I want that exact temperature that his are, but I can't seem to find anywhere that lists its specifications. Any help?

If you want bluish HID, then you should get 5000 K and up. I don't know what the HID spec for Murano is. But if you can see blue, then it's probably somewhere around 6000 K.
