Is that with the Spark 8000K in the fogs or no?

I have commented on another thread.I ordered a set of supernova blue leds from autolumination.They are the ones with the heatsink built in.I will be the guinea pig to see if those leds will hold up to the heat in the headlight housings.If not i will stick with incadescent bulbs.
And on a personal note,I actually like the yellow bulbs for 194's as opposed to hyperwhites,had those in there before and didn't like them with my combo of lows/fogs/highs.
But everyone has their own style and opinion.

Thanks for the pics djquik. So the Apexcone 6000K HID and the Spark 8000K for the fogs is the best setup? And I won't have any problems with them or anything?

If you want the 6000k for color,I have an 8000k apexcone 35w kit in mine with a retrofit on the projectors and I have D2S bulbs instead of H1's.I would highly recommend spending the extra $100 if you are going hid and do a retrofit.My setup puts out more light than a new 6 with factory hid.If i am not mistaken,I am the first one to use the apexcone hid with a projector retrofit.check out this thread

Yeah I think I'm just gonna stick with the HID and the Spark 8000K. I just wanted to make sure there were no problems or anything with this setup.

I was just reading thru some threads and it seems that people prefer the 5000K HID rather than the 6000K one. Is the 6000K like too bright? And is the only difference between the two basically just the color of the light? Like blue and purple.

It can get confusing with the K color charts when PIAA 8000K say blue .... then 6000K purple ApexCone .... 5000K Apexcone Blue again .... and your first link with your 6000K Apex ; the PIAA 4000K Purple

Take your pick on the color hue you want ....

Personally I would go H1 or better yet retro D2S 5000K Apex 50W (Bright White w/hint blue hue) + Spark 8000K PIAA + 194 PIAA that match in bright white w/hint blue hue (don't know which 194 for the halo effect and reliability - stay away from LEDs ! IMO)
