the relay harness takes power directly from the battery so that you won't fry your bcm... i believe uneek said that only the 06's need the relay harness... but when i installed my relay harness, i could tell that my lights were a little brighter and stronger...

edit:

Fixer has a kit out that comes with a relay harness... u have a lot of options here bro lol

i've actually done some reading.. OEM's use 5300K. I think I'm going with that.

I was going to run 6k in my bike and in the car, but I'm going to go with the OEM Kelvin and see what the difference is.

As stated above, my kits DO come with a relay harness.

Most OEM actually use 4300K. The different purple and blue that you see on S2000's and BMWs comes from the optics in the headlights, and how they split and refract the light.

I had a Philips 4300K kit on my 300ZX before I got my Tib, and they looked great. Blue/green on startup that fades to pure white, not ricy purple.

That pic obviously has a star filter on the lense (or a photoshop trick afterwards).

6000k's look more white on the road than 4300ks, but looking from the front, they look a little blue-ish. 4300k is the standard that automobile manufacturers use on BMW, Lexus, Cadi, ect. While the bulbs themselves do not emit a blue colour, the projector lenses will give off a "prizm" effect and show some blue at certain angles.

That picture has been taken using a special lens filter to make it look the way it does. It doesn't actually look like that in person.

My HID kit does not require a relay harness. I've sold the kits to well over 60 NT members.

I've got 8K, wish I had 6K. 8K is a little too blue for my taste. 6K is a sharper, more white light.
