    Default 6000k or 8000k HID kit for facelift....

    I've had 6000k on 5 previous cars and never had the guts to go for 8000k. Anybody got any pictures of them fitted?

    Will be going for a 50w kit from hids direct so will be brighter than a 35w kit

    It depends on your confidence level, 8K's scream "aftermarket" and will draw attention to you, even 6K's do look aftermarket in colour and could still get you unwanted attention.

    I used to see lots of 8K and even some 10K equipped cars but the majority seem to have swapped to normal / 4300K / 5000K bulbs

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default

    I had 8K i when I had my Vectra (and have 8K in my current MG) and love them. Yes they are "aftermarket" looking, but thats what I wanted, didn't want it to look OEM, but they are not too blue at all, some guess and say they are, but they are not, at all.

    If you fancy them, go for them.

    Thanks for the input, dont want to get pulled in it so think i'll opt for the 6000k 50w ones.

    They are only a couple of quid more than the 35w ones at the moment on hids direct as they have a sale on.
