I ordered 5000k but I think they sent me 7000k -- they are way too blue

after 6000k you gain color (blue, purple) and lose luminosity

I sent them an email and they're going to send me another set of bulbs to be sure

I wanted 5000k because I wanted white-white, not white-blue or blue-blue

aside from the mix up, the kit is great

im still undecided between 4300k or 5000k
4300k is oem HID of all the major brand and have the optimal output

I wish I had known about 4300k when I ordered mine - I was told 5000k to 6000k was OEM. they're way too blue/purple!

i have the 6000k and i think it is a HUGE improvement over stock, and it does have that slight blue shade to it, which doesn't look different from an average car equipped with hid's, so i dont stand out. my parent's 03 maxima has 4300k hid's and they seem to have a blue shade to them as well ???, but either way, the improvement in visibility is worth it. i aslo installed mine as i was installing the grill with the bumper off, so there are some nice spots to hide the wires/ballasts, makes for a VERY clean install, i have no visible wires in my engine bay except the little fuse box by the washer.
