HID Replacement Bulbs

Back in June i purchased some HIDs for my truck and i got the 6,000K bulb. I don't mind the blue tint that the bulb has, but i want a little brighter bulb. I have been looking at the 5,000K bulb which is the brightest that i have found. My question is: If i want to switch the 6,000K bulb to the 5,000K bulb, do i need to buy an entirely new kit or can i just purchase the bulb by itself and replace it?

Any help would be grateful

You should just be able to buy new bulbs.

You can buy just the replacement bulbs, I would go with 5000K. I have had good luck with DDM products.

Correct, and I have tried 4300, 5000, 6000 at 35 watts... this is in 8" Hella 4000 off road racing lamps.

I find 5000K the whitest/ brightest color of those three. I did notice a bit of yellow in the 4300s, and the 6000s were way way too blue (some said they looked like 8000K).

5000K was a perfect blend. However, mine are 'cheap' Chinese bulbs from GG Lighting and the light 'moves' or flickers after they warm up... As long as they don't fail, I can live with that.
