    confused 4300k, 5000k or 6000k hids-direct kit?

    Right I've finally narrowed it down to the lights I want but I would like to have some pitures for reference. If anyone has got the 4300k, 5000k or 6000k kit from hids-direct could you show me some pictures so I can decide which colour to get myself. thanks.

    4300K will give you the same light as OEM fitment.

    The higher the K number, the bluer the lights will be, and also dimmer.

    In short,

    4300k if you want them to look the same as standard fitment.

    6000k is the highest number you should consider fitting. Any higher and you might start attracting the attention of the police because of the blueness of the lights.

    Go with 4300 or 5000. I had 5000 on all my previous cars and it was the brightest white. 6000 is too blue.
