    my brain hurts from trying to read that


    But HIDs will give you way more light output than halogen bulbs like the silverstars

    Yeah I didn't really understand that either, but from your title, the hid's will be much brighter than the silverstars, as said above

    5000ºK is brighter than 6000ºK... you do understand that the Kelvin temperature is for color choice, not power output... right?

    A lot of guys like their fogs to be more yellow and use 3000ºK HIDs for the fogs. I prefer pure white with a hint of blue (brings out colors at night, like the blue sky does in the day)... 4300ºK is often considered the brightest HID, it has just a hint of yellow. 5000ºK is what my lamps are... white with some blue. I tried 6000ºK and the ones I tried were way too blue and dimmer than the 4300s I had tried before.

    HIDS (high intensity discharge) will produce more power than even the new silvestar zxes (higher than ultras)...Plus ultra's dont have a good life expectancy from what i've heard.
