hid question...
OK im thinking about getting McCulloch hid's...now my question is how bright is 8000k? Are they pure white? blue? or purple? Im really going for a pure white hid with a hint of blue and I was always told that 4300k is the best...Help!!

my Toyota dealer (who plays car like crazy) told me that 7000K looks great and is the best(he had it on his Accord Coupe V6 limit edition), it's pure white...
and all stock HIDs are 4000Ks - 4300Ks...you wouldnt want to spend hundreds to get a stock like HIDs do you?
and for 8000K i think it will be pure white with a bit blue...(my assumption tho)

EDIT: Pure white with little purple for the 7000K, and it's freaking bright...will be brighter with our projector lights i think.

I forgot all this crap I don't even remember how bright are the HIDs we sell.


ok I did a little research this are the lights I sell.
http://www.lightingresearch.com/hid_kits/about_hid_conversion_kit.htm

this is the color chart
http://www.lightingresearch.com/hid_kits/comparison_chart.htm

and here is a list of all the kits HID PRO make.
http://www.lightingresearch.com/hid_conversion_kit.htm

5600k is white
7500k is blue
10000k is purple

so you want the 10000 for BEST performance

7500k is more than fine tho.

8000k is purple more so and it takes away from ur overall visiblity the best is bout 4700k-5000k white with a dash of blue. not yellow and not all blue or purple with haveing so much color i.e blue or purple they are very bright but not for long distance like you might notice ur headlights won't shine as far. we put 8000k hids in my friends car and noticed that lookin at them were hella bright i mean blinding but were not the best light level then he returned them and got 5000k and it was always daytime with them!
