Thanks Tre! that really helps. Definitly make that a sticky topic somehow.

I think I am going to run the 4300k.
Now the HID kit is just a box I install behind my stock lights correct? and change out bulbs? and how much does a set cost roughly?

(Sorry to thread jack)

I've done PLENTY of research on this topic... I can't believe how much BS I've had to dig through to get to the actual facts.


EDIT: Trent... Sylvania actually stated that their SilverStars were 4300K... that's from what I remember from a couple years ago.
You have me confused with Tre

4300k will be your brightest. I went with 6000k and am very happy.

I've got 3000k fogs and 5000k headlights. Love 'em. Now my grandmother wants a set in her Exploder.

When you order the HID's get a relay kit. I still need one for my fogs.
