I have changed my HID bulbs from 4300k to 6000k. Let me know what you think.


Less then 50:50 and you are not driving hard enough.

looks more white. can't tell much difference in those pics. maybe if you showed us the cutoff close up against a wall or a nightshot in the open to test output.

do your fogs match the color of the HID? and are you planning on changing the parking lights to match as well? looks good, though

So you can just switch out bulbs to whatever temperature if you already have the stock hid's? I don't think I've seen hid bulbs just hid look bulbs.

Both look awesome, mainly because the car looks so awesome I'd say good switch tho, how's the difference in output?

6000k are seen in the left image. The bulbs are Xtec. Other then a slight blue tint the amount of light looks the same when driving.

Less then 50:50 and you are not driving hard enough.

i guess if u go for looks. then i would say that 6000K is the best color and output proportion !!

although i must add that if u r driving for a long trip at night. ur eyes will get tired much faster than 4300K bulbs....

I'm partial to 6000K myself. Did you notice any decrease in output?
