    4300k is as close to natural white as you can get. The higher you go, the more of a blue-ish tint you get, till 10,000k which is more like purple

    Personally I'd go for 4300k - 35w or 50w, it won't really matter.

    As far as I know, as long as u don't go above 6000k then its all gd "blue" wise, but I know theres a couple of members with 10000k HIDs in as well. 35w is more than enough to go on as well.
