    You say you want bright AND blue/violet lights. You can have one or the other, but not both. The more blue you go the less light output you will have. I'd say get 5000K or 6000K bulbs to get the most out of your HIDs.

    ^^^ Very good advice. Once you get to 8000K and above the light output is not as good. It may look cool, but you won't see as much as you should and that can be dangerous.
