that sounds fine... 8000K is the color temperature, which gives you your color...

if I were you, I would look into the HID's that have low and hi beam...they are a little more expensive...but then you can use them in low and high. Personally I prefer 6000K...looks less ricey. And yeah 9007 is what you would need.

i have the 8000k and the more blue u get and purple the less it sticks on the road in bad conditions the color just gets sucked into the pavement.

the 8000k have a little blue in them but look white when u are driving but on comming cars will see blue thats why i like and its not to blue to get in toruble with and still works awesome in bad weather.

here is a pic of the color but it looks better and bluer then in pic if ur in the distance.

thats because thats what there intended for. you can tell almost everytime if the HID bulb is in a factory housing or projetor by watching the color of the light. in a projector, it will become white the closer you get to the vehicle, and become less "blinding". in a factory housing, the light never changes, and will become very irratating to oncoming drivers.

i saw case and point tonight, wish i had my cam. saw a freakin blue ball of light coming from miles away, never changed. it got up closer, and saw it was a huge truck. got closing to crossing paths, and i had to pull to the side a lil and squint, as the freakin superduty was decked out with the usual "pimp " accessories.
