is there a difference in color from different companies? like say if i were to get a HID 8000k from one company, and then get a HID 8000k from another, would there be a color difference?

6000K and 8000K is a color temperature, not necessarily a type.

If a company advertises that their HIDs project 8000K color, then one can assume it would be very close to another brand.

Keep in mind that color/brightness is also greatly determined by the type of projector, too, and not only the bulb/ballast.

Yep, gamz has it. Color temperatures should be fairly uniform across the board, the difference lies in the optics of the projector [or lack thereof in a reflector setup].

exactly..... so if I like the way the vinyl looks then I would go ahead and paint tint the foglight lens....

So what if I lose like $10 bucks to see if its what I want to do...
