HID bulbs...

I am going to bu some hella HID and I get the option to select which bulbs to use. I'm thinking of getting either 8000K or 9000k, which would you recommend?

It depends on what you're going for. If you're interested in that high of temperature range, you will be sacrificing visibility for color output. Those will be either a solid blue, or purplish. I have 6000K, and they're bluish/purple. Don't get me wrong, 8000K will still have more light output than halogens, but the lower the temperature rating, the brighter they'll be. It comes down to what you want.

i woudl stick int he 5 or 6 at most range. You will loose allot of visibility. It will look awsome as hell but not when you cant see and you hit somehting wink I have the stock 4300 wish they were a bit bluer. But thinking of getting 8k for the fogs. so they will be nice and blue and doent matte as much if i cant see with those wink
