    iirc the standard xenons are only 4300k, definatly worth going up to 6000k but remember they'll also be a bit more blue than what you have

    No. Stick with what's in there. 4300 have a far better light output than 6000. 6000 look more bluey, but also look like after-market jobs, and a bit dodgy boy racer in my opinion, and I speak as an owner who has dabbled in many HID of all outputs. I bought my brand new veccy last year with the AFL option and the lights, their output and their colour is absolutely spot on. Don't change them would be my advice

    Having had 6000K HID's in my old Vec, and AFL in my new Signum, I'd have to agree that the 4300 look good close up and when you're looking at the headlight itself, but when on the road itself the colour is rubbish. My old 6000K bulbs put out an amazing white light with a slight bluish tinge, far nicer and brighter than the stock bulbs in my AFL...

    Not sure what sort of cost new bulbs are as the HID ones have compeltely different connectors, but definitely something I'll be looking into...

    Personally I would not mess with the standard AFL bulbs. I would be very nervous about putting aftermarket zenon bulbs in a factory zenon headlight.
