Unless you are buying them for a show or something, I would never get 8k let alone 10k.

Even at 6k you lose a noticable amount of light, by 10k your expensive zenons are not any bright actually might even be some what dimmer then Halogens.

8k and 10k are actually going to be pretty dim. Higher the number the dimmer they get.

10000K ????!!!! da..mn !!!!
it's actually darker than the stock 4300k , 10000K ,8000K, and 6000K are bluer then 4300k but actually they're darker . I have 6000K for my low beam and fogs, they're darker then the stock ones .

This is just goofy.

Most companies can't even figure out what they are trying to market - bright or just junk.

It's like the "xenon-like" bulbs that everyone eventually figures out is just a marketing gimmick.

10000K is PURPLE, not blue, PURPLE.

Blue is 5000-6000. Most companies cannot properly guage what is and is not 8000K or higher. Just marketing gimmicks.

with all the guys on here with 6000k i dont think they look all that blue from the pics they have posted. the 6000k looks more like a light purple with a crisp white light in there as well. :dunno: i want something that has a blue light output but is still affective at night. maybe im asking for too much.

I have 7000k and it's purple, I recently had a chance to put in 6000k bulbs and they were very blue, looks much nicer imo

I like the purple look myself. Put some nice yellow HID fogs in, and you've got a great contrast, looks really nice IMO.

:hmm: interesting. i didnt know that 6000k are more blue than 7000k. then why does the 10000k in the pic i posted look sooo blue?

btw: jlevi or umnitza do you guys sell just the d2s bulbs in 6000k or above? thats what i need instead of the hid kits. sorry for the confusion. thanks
