Kelvin...

You lose light output after 8k.

This thread could start problems so i'm gonna try and stay away from it!

But 4,300k is the brightest you can go with HIDs without sacrificing light for color. I'll always run either 4,300k or 6,000k HIDs in whatever I own. I had a buddy who thought his 10k's were brighter than my 4300's and he took them out and finally admitted to it and ordered some 6k's for his fogs and headlamps... It's funny what some people think... but hey if you want less light and more color get something above 8k... HIDs are meant to be bright and when you start buying them for color you might as well buy an imitation because they're not gonna do anything for you and aren't worth the money...

That's my $.02... I say if you are gonna buy HIDs go 3000k-8000k.
