When I got my 03 330 and I compared to my friends 01 330ci, his xenon lights have more of a purple effect to them.

Is that why you got the 6000 K's?

Are they much brighter, more purple? as compared to stock xenon?


Where can I get them and how much??

Thanks

yes that IS the reason why most 02-03 owner get 6000k, 02-03 has bixenon and for some reason, the output of the xenon is more yellowish than pre 01

6000k is NOT brighter than stock 4300k but the output has a very nice color, do a search, you'll find more info than you need.

www.suvlights.com is by far the cheapest ONLINE... 280 shipped

the 6000k's are on the right, the ones on the left are the factory ones...the lower you go its gonna get more purple...you want 9000k? they will be really white Ill show you my 8000k if you want...

hmm.. no. the higher you go.. the more purplish/blueish it gets

34k is whiter than 60k.. that's the idea...

and anything above 8k is all fake/gimic... do a search.. you'll find the tread about it

I can't believe these pics of the 6000K bulbs, I mean I thought the stock projectors from BMW were very white! But damn! those pics look hot.....price is pretty high for just bulbs though....whole HID kit on ebay are $340...
