Thumbs down

I just bought a HID kit from E-BAY,sadly I think the kit sucks...,I ordered 4300K,but I cant find anything regard K in the box(or wherever).However,it's written 5000K on the light bulb box(by pen,ok),I asked the seller to make sure it's 4300K as I ordered,he didnt reply me yet.Even he reply,he can just tell me it's 4300K,right?I wont know the difference.

So I just want to know is there any way to figure out the "K" by myself?

PS Check the manual 100 times,nothing...

PS2(not for playing,ok?)I know it's not that of a big deal between 4300K and 5000K,but I am planning to get HID for my fog 2 and I want the color perfectly matched...
Somebody,help me~~~~~,please~~~~~

all you have to do is just tell the customers that eveything is fine and whatever the problem is, it is suppose to be like that. (Does not apply to those hard workers who really care about their customers' cars)

i wish there was a color chart or a filter you can put over your lights that would tell you but this was all i could find...



The truth is i guess you'll have to find someone who knows their K color and then just park your cars next to each other with your lights on and compare.

CrossBow and I have the same brand HIDs but his are 4500k and mine are 5000k. when we park next to each other they look almost identical... CrossBow's are probably a little more white... but it's not really that noticable unless you look very closely.... and let me remind you not to look directly into the light... looking directly at them will guarantee black spots for hours....
