    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default 6000k to 5000k HID change

    Anyone gone from 6000k HIDs down to 5000k HIDs?

    One of my bulbs is very slightly flickering (Have to look really hard to see it) and I noticed the bulb had a white patch when I fitted it as it was an old kit (About 2 years old).

    So I am looking at replacing the bulbs.

    Rather than getting more 6000k ones I was thinking about 5000k ones so they are a bit brighter and whiter.

    Anypne done this?

    Possibly trapped moisture when you fitted them.

    On a dry day take the covers off and drive with your lights on for a bit then put the covers back on.

    5K's are the best colour ive found so far.

    @0114NIGEL0114 the moisture drips off the slam panel on to the rubber grommet on the bulb wires then leaks through the factory cover. I used some vasaline stop stop it getting in. Also the wires can bunch up and push the cover off the back of the headlight too, sticking the wires between the washer filler neck and the battery helps keep the pressure off the seal.
