As mentioned 5000k will be less blue and brighter. In my previous vehicle I originally had a 4300k kit which is the brightest/whitest and swapped out to 5000k bulbs and there wasn't too much of a difference. Very very faint hint of blue. Whereas 6000k has a very noticeable blue to it. I like 5000k myself if you're not using projectors(although I'd never run them again without proper retrofit) and 4300k if you're doing a proper retrofit.

I just ordered a 4500k kit from ddmtuning, which I'm guessing is really 4300k. Did have 6000k before they quit on me. Hopefully it will be brighter, because the 6000k wasn't as bright as I was expecting.
