The blue/purplish coloring is cool looking at the higher kelvin but begins to lose some of its functionality. Of course, it is your choice and the amount light output for distance may or may not be of a priority depending on where you live (ex: living in the city with lots of street lamps it may not make a difference, but out in the rural locations or lots of night highway driving you may want to have more visibility.). I have stock HIDs on my 6s GT and love them, but I wouldn't mind going to an more optimal light output level than what I have now (I believe stock is around 4300K, correct me if I am wrong). I think 5500K would be ideal, but given the choice or 5000 or 6000 K, I would choose the 5000K for the better output (I live out in the country with lots of highways, deer, and a few amish). Just my $.02 .

1/4 Mile: 15.609s @ 89.69 MPH <-- MIR, 3/1/08. Burnout done for traction, Brake torqued around 1700RPMs, Wheelspin off the line. Low trap time due to Cyl #6 misfire.
0-60 MPH (60.3 actually): 6.45s <-- Timed with MSD DashHawk (TCS off, D Mode, no brake torque, some wheelspin off the line). Repeatable. Time should improve with better launching and better tires.
Dyno/Tune (Conservative timing adjustment) 1/26/08 ---> 182.53 HP / 172.33 TQ at the wheels (SAE format)

Man, I dunno even know if there&#39;s even a point to this cuz when I was talking to another member on the thread he said he had 8000k HID&#39;s can&#39;t remember the brand but he said they were WHITE with a tinge of blue. So i asked him isn&#39;t 8000k like REALLY STRAIGHT BLUE (like some other members have) he said no it just depends on the kit you have. So if this really is so, then I&#39;m assuming everybody know what the different K&#39;s look like on the Katsuro kit then.

8k&#39;s too much blue, not enough output. You&#39;re going mainly for looks if you go 8k. 5500k&#39;s a great medium IMO but, can&#39;t find it often. I&#39;d do 6k for sure, so good choice.
