    Default xenon bulbs question...!

    hy all
    I have on my signum 05 AFL headlights (with xenon)....
    and about one week ago i`v parked my car with face on a wall and I noticed that one of my headlight had a little yellow color and another is cold white color...
    I think that bulb what looks little yellow has a start of the end...
    Now I think I`l change them booth....
    but I want to know what color to put now....because with this one....on the rainy and foggy nights I`m not see very far....
    I think mine is the manufactured bulbs and had 3200 K....like I knew....
    just want to ask somebody who had already changed his D2S xenons with a better color if this help on rain and fog...
    I`w think on a 6000k or 8000k to put...but don`t know how far will they light on the rain or fog...
    Please help me on this question...

    And another question is about the xenons on the high beam...
    I want to change mine halogen high beam with a xenon bulbs....(H1 I think)...and want to know how to make the high beam ballast to stay charge (full time)...because it take a little time when change from low beam on high beam and then i need to wait a little time to see with my high beam...
    Thanks all

    New ones are 4200k ish not 3200k. These give the whitest light. As the value increases the light output decreases and the colour changes from white, through blue to purple.

    Lower than this it starts to go yellow. Hth
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It's up to you what you choose but my 4.3k ones were excellent IMO but each to their own. I dont know if they go yellow before they fail. Sorry

    4300K is what they come out of the factory with and what IMO looks best. I certainly would not go for anything above 6000K

    Something like these would do nicely
