HID Colors

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I've seen some people ask about HID color's and some people ask me about what my HID's look like. I did some research to answer all of your color questions. I hope this helps all of you wondering which HID's to buy.

3000K has an approximately 3200lm output, which is more than 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 3000K emits GOLDEN YELLOW color and offers superior penetration power during adverse weather epically in dense fog. The applications of the 3000K kit aim more towards secondary lighting apparatus such as high beam and fog lights. The 3000K capsule is actually a 5000K capsule specially coated with a film that filters out all the wave length except the range of wave length which emits yellow. This is the color temperature that will catch all the attention on the road.

5000K has an approximately 3200lm output, which is more than 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and is the color temperature with the most output. The light appears fairly white, and has light yellowish hue when reflected off the road identical to the OEM HID equipped vehicles. This color is for customers who is looking for pure performance white improving the looks of their headlight. It is idea for customers who does alot of back road or canyon driving and need the optimal visibility. This is the color temperature that give you the most light for your bucks

6000K has an approximately 2800lm output, which is 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and slightly less light output compared to the 5000K. Although it has a bit lesser light output, it emits pure whiter light with very slight and barely noticeable tint of blue and purple

8000K has an approximately 2550lm output, which is about 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light and slightly less light output compared to the 6000K. While it has a bit lesser light output, it emits bluer light than the 6000K

10000K has an approximately 2200lm output, which is more than 2x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 10000K produces a deep blue light output approaching violet and the blue is noticeably deeper than the 8000K.

12000K has an approximately 2100lm output, which is more than 2x the light output of the traditional halogen light. This color temperature puts out a deep bluish violet light and is deeper colored than the 10000K. It is for customer who is looking for the most extreme and most exotic looking light output.

All HID vary due to power and a bit of a color difference. Most kits with the same "K" will look almost exactly the same to the naked eye. If any one has any other questions about these, just shoot me a PM and i'll answer what i've read or research it and get back to you. Good luck with your kits!

Major General Oliver P. Smith, commander of the 1st Marine Division in Korea, who, when asked if his troops were retreating, said: "Retreat, hell! We're not retreating, we're just advancing in a different direction." (A variation on the fighting words of Marine Captain Lloyd W. Williams, who, when ordered to retreat at Belleau Wood in World War I, replied: "Retreat, hell! We just got here.")

Re: HID Color's

Additions: These pictures are a little exagerated, but i think they will give you the idea.



They have been edited to help show the color difference, they really don't output "that much" color.

Re: HID Color's

Re: HID Color's

As a general guide this is very accurate.

But yes, different brands will give you slightly different tints to the light. For instance, my 6000k HID's have a slightly greenish tint in comparison to my buddies 6000k HID's which are very blue/purple.

Re: HID Color's

My 55w 8000Ks look a lot different than most other 8000Ks I've seen. They look like 10000K from a distance and 6000K up close.

Re: HID Color's

My 8500K look a lot like the 6000K, they're not very blue. But, i also bought them off of eBay.(They are not the cheap brand, but they aren't top quality.)

Very nice thread. Maybe this will help some members. I am getting a little tired of answers HID questions.

My old 8000K were also closer in colour to the 6000K shown in the pic. They've since been swapped out for 4300K, which I wouldn't change for the world, for two reasons:
  • The more colour you have in your HIDs, the more unwanted attention you're going to get from the cops, particularly in a modified tib.
  • 4300K is very bright and will show reflectors at a relatively "safe" distance, if you're paying attention. You do the math about what I'm talking about

Re: HID Color's

you also need to add that when you go 6000K or higher, you get a LOT of glare. Glare is bad for on coming traffic and it really is USELESS for the driver.

Like its been stated before, any of them with blue (6000K +) actually strains the eyes.

Personal recomendation...4300 or 5000.

Yeah, I would run 8000K myself but as of late, I too have been recommending 4500K-6000K to customers to get the best use out of HID's while still giving it a nice color.

Re: HID Color's

don't forget if you get 50/55WATT hids.. they're totally different colors.. meaning the Lumens is going to change so the temperature will vary. So the more "blue" you want, the higher the temp to buy, but will show more white
