    The 6000k are the whitest, as the numbers get larger the colors go from white to blue, then Purple. Thats my take on it. I have the 6000k and love them. Look in the buy/sell/trade section I thought I saw some for sale there. The kits you find on here will likely all be plug and play, shoult take 30min to an hour to install depending on how OCD you are. Mine took me about 45min.

    Check here pm this guy.

    Yeah, 4300K or 5000K for white bulbs. 6000K will have a slight blue tint to them.

    Hey I'm in the same boat as you are. Hey Delmarva, I was looking at getting a 6000k setup. Now I hate when there's to much blue but I like it when there's just a hint of blue like the BMW and Lexus's HID's. Are those around the 6000k marker?

    The only way you are really going to get that "hint of blue" like all those BMWs and such is with a projector retrofit. Otherwise, you are stuck one solid color.

    I think you may have overpaid a bit, he says they're digital ballasts, but they look like the regular ones, I thought digital ballasts were thinner. Also, you should have gotten one with a wiring harness that draws power directly from the battery rather from the OEM stock headlight socket. By drawing directly from the battery it puts less stress on the stock headlight harness.

    Just my 2 pennies worth, take it with a grain of salt.

    Very nice kit! You picked the right seller to purchase an aftermarket HID kit from. This seller is a great guy. I have talked to many people who are very happy with his products. His products also last a long time too and they come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!.

    Well it comes with a full wiring harness like it said in the auction. It also draws power directly from the battery I think because this is what he wrote me:
    "The bixenon kits require use of a harness to integrate everything together and to work on all vehicles (especially yours since it is wired for negative switching). Still plug and play with the exception of one battery positive and two ground connections that just bolt right on underneath existing frame bolts. Everythign you need comes with it. 6000k is available, yes. "

    Or am I wrong?:confused:
