Another note. 35 watt is already brighter than stock so if you go 55 watt you will get people high beaming and you might get pulled over.

4k has a little bit of yellow in it, 6k has a little bit of blue in it, but not so much that you would get pulled over.

There is a group buy for these right now at: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/gro...8-15-10-a.html

First off I wouldn't buy anything from DDM their kits are hit or miss and from what I've read the customer service is a joke. But if you want a really nice bright light that does the best job lighting up objects and the road go with the 5K that's what I'm going to be running soon.

Here's the kit I'm looking at: all digital and a lifetime warranty on the bulbs

yeah, it seems it is hit or miss with DDM. I personally havent had any problems with my lights from DDM, but it is friday the 13th, so we will see what happens. All my lights are 6000k except my headlights which are 8000k... 5000k is probably the whitest you can get, no blue or yellow tint to them.
