So i've decided that I want HIDs. I'm prety sure that I want a 6000k Kit. It seems that is the more popular choice. I've been reading any threads that I can find about them, and it seems like there are a lot of choices for kits. I know several people on NT sell them as well. I guess i'm looking for some feedback as to good vs bad kits. any reliability issues you may have had. The price you paid, and where you got the kit. Also, have you had any problems with the police and a 6000k kit being "to blue." Thanks for any info you can provide!

6000k is not blue it more white then anything, i've had a 8k kit on my old car and never had any problems with cops, i have a 10k on my tiburon right now and love it, visibility is so much better with HID's, just make sure you aim your headlights correctly to where you are not blinding drivers, i got the HALO kit from uneek on here so i recommend him, just don't go cheap with HID's you get what you pay for.

I have the 8000's from uneek. Highly recomended-best service you can get. His 8000k's are not that blueish. Haven't had any problems with the cops.

Each MFG's bulb will Vary just a little. I ride with a guy that has 8k on his bike...I had 8k also. His had ALOT more blue then mine. I've since switched to 5k on the bike and the car. Its close to OEM (4300K) and I can see much better.

With the kits I sell, I'm starting to recomend 4300k or 5000k. Unless they want the blue to them. My kits also come with the relay kit as part of the package...

Hey Fixer...when you say OEM is 4300k is that standard across the industry? I've noticed when looking at other high end cars (bmw as an example) that their lights do definitily have a blue tint to them. I'm going more for functionality, but i would still like the "hid look" :)

...there is certainly not a lack of HID vendors here. LOL. My friend has 6000K and for my taste those were already a bit too blueish. Will go 5000K most likely...once I find those $200...

That's because of the projectors they have. They still use 4300k but the projectors give them a blue tint at a certain angle.

yes what you said :)


Even ours will do that. When your passing a car with projectors, the projector "bends" the light and you'll see a blue, sometimes purple.

4300 is OEM...and that seems to be across the board. If you want visability...stick with 5k's.... I hvae posted pictures of the diffference between the 8k and 5k's.....BIG difference.

My GF says that there is no more blue in them. She used to be able to pick me out 6 cars behind her cause they were blue. I'll see if I can get some pictures again this weekend of the 5ks.

I have Halo 8K's and they have a small tint to them, like other makers 6K bulbs.

As always, you get what you pay for.

The two kits offered predominantly on this site are pretty good. Inexpensive, look cool, and get the job done. But in terms of lighting technology, nothing really does match Philips, Sylvania, or GE.

Compare this image to those up top:



Philips Ultinon 5800K in one headlight, Philips 4100K in the other. That's why these conversion kits are $500-$600 rather than $200.
