    Default HID Bulbs

    Hi,
    Does anyone know where I can buy replacement hid bulbs?
    I'm looking for 6000k or 8000k HID bulbs 50w.
    Most bulbs seem to be for 35w.
    I take it that my 50w system would blow the **** out of 35w bulbs.
    Cheers.

    Just found out that 50w kits use 35w bulbs but just drive them harder and probably half the life of the bulbs compared to 35k kits.
    Also because the bulbs are driven harder apparently the colour output is reduced and this could explain why my 5000k bulbs appear to be a bit yellow rather than bright white.

    What I would like to know from people who have the 50w kits is what colour (K) bulbs you have and what colour do they look.
