    As long as it's the same type of bulb then you can change to whichever K rating you want.

    i have 6000k and im very happy with these, just the right colour. i get my spare bulbs from ebay for around £15 the pair most kits have the same weathe prof connectors so most bulbs will fit most ballasts.

    Default hids

    most oe hids are 4300k

    Hids4u recommend 5000k as the brightest whitest light

    anything above 5000k is just less light output and more blue

    Anything above 8000k is- well- just sellotape a purple quality street wrapper to your headlamp, and you get the idea.

    in a nutshell- 5000k= most light

    6000k= most sstylish blue light

    8000k= chavvy plod magnet
