what's the difference between 10000k and 5000k
as you go higher does it go brighter or more bluish?

and as far as I understand the color changes also... the lower the more purple... the higher the more blue.

Am I right on this one?

The best light Performance/quality is where it is whitest but people like the "HID look" so they get higher or lower than optimal light output.

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/thread.f_252822_0_collapsed_5__1.html happywink

10000k is great for looks..

but to get both looks and Performance we need to do a retrofit

because you have to remove
the front bumper and headlight
assembly then do some refitting
behind the bulb where it orginally
was.

you should paint your Hood... it would look great if it was white with the lines of carbon fiber... the black makes it look like you just got an oem Hood not painted...

You do decrease in Performance but
its not so significant that nothing
is visible. You actually see a lot on

nope i got ufos on both side.
they both look about the same
brightness just remove your light
assembly that does have the ufos
and just cover up the holes the light
is coming out of, if it bothers you that
much thumbsup
