    So I'm getting hids for my taco this week, the thing is, is that I can't decide between 5k or 6k. Any suggestions, pros or cons would be helpful thanks.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    5k's are going to be whiter and put out more light the 6k's have a little blue tint to them and just a little less light but you really can notice the difference in light but you can notice the color temp difference.
