I got mine from www.xenoneyes.com about a year and a half ago. No problems so far, but they cost more than the autoluminate place.

another thing about autoluminate....i've beenrunning them in my fogs for a year now without any issues whatsoever. the heads are another story since they like to 'blink' all the damn time. lol. heads are not from autoluminate.

4300k is perfect imo....it's flashy without being super flashy. The color is comparable to Silvania Silverstar Ultra halogens, but alot brighter. It's White with a slight hint of yellow and lights the ground up very similar to a halogen.

But...if you want pure white with a tiny hint of blue, 6000k is the way to go.

www.xenonvisions.com is where I got mine. Part of a group buy from another forum site I belong to. 6000K's I love them. As far as the "color" or temp of the lights, it really comes down to when you think looks best.

Yeah Shane has it dead on, 6000k are super white with a little tint of blue, very little. 4300k are about the same white with a little tint of yellow.
