you wont get as much visiblity as a 4100k or 4300k kit though.
That's true, but will the 6000 or 8000 still be brighter than stock?
I have 6000k but I'd rather have more light on the road
just that the color you see in the headlamps is what you see on the ground
everything seemed bright but dark at the same time
so i'm switching to 4100k
real or stock oem hid systems.. the color is all due to the projector and other small factors liek the shield..etc.
Vision, a Korean bulb manufacturer, makes an 8000K bulb, which they used to advertise on Acura-Forums as 2000 lumens bright. This is barely a marked improvement over halogens, and will produce more glare and eye fatigue than it is beneficial. 4100K has been proven through tireless independent research by the Germans, Japanese, and Americans to be the most functional, truest white and thus the brightest possible color temperature (ceteris paribus).
Blue light also shifts the color hue of everything on the road to blue scale, which fatigues your eyes more than a standard halogen bulb, and it's brightness isn't that much of a marked improvement over a xenon-filled halogen bulb.
But 6000k is the most you should ever go IMO
and get Philips... Philips is the number one manufacturer of HID bulbs.
and they don't make anything brighter than 6000k
