    Default What color/temp is your HID?

    Hi all,

    Would like to know what color or temperature you guys selected for your HID and why.

    I have 55w 6000k, brightness is fine and look nice, but i am not get used to the color and feel tired in 6000k.

    Ordered a pair of 55w 4300k.

    5000k is not common in aftermarket ones isn't it? It's the most comfortable white i think.

    Sorry i can't edit the poll lists, so hope mod can add 5000k in.

    no you don't need to have headlight washers ....easy way to tell if you have hid is to turn on your headlights they will start up dull and you can watch them brighten up ..
    good place to buy them is here http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/hid-con...its-p-445.html
