    It is H4 Hi/Low, there is two option, one is HID HI/LOW, the other one is HID LOW/Halogen HI.
    I have 55watt HID Hi/LOW. I love it.

    its not 8000k lumens, the k is the color, and you'll actually get more lumens w/ the 4300k kit...fyi

    and you need the H4 type, which is a high/low bulb
