im going to pick up HID kits for my headlight and fog lights....

im either going to get 6000K or 8000K just wondering what other people are running and if they got pictures that would be great.

Depends on the color manufacturer as some cheaper ones you have find the best K as they represent it properly. But my plan was 6000k for the headlights. and a 4-4300k for the fogs. it's a bit more yellow but my research has come to make me believe it will enhance the look to make for better visibility . Just like the all weather or all vision Slyvania bulbs have a ting of yellow..

Not to mention. Make sure you get your headlights and fogs aimed properly. as you don't want to be blinding on-coming traffic with your illegal headlights

That's nice.
I'm glad you read the whole post.
As It depends on the manufacturer. Hence why i posted the lighting pic.

I have a connection on a different forum where there brightest are 6000. so 4300k = 6000k in their bulbs.
and 3100k = 4300 in their bulbs..

Thanks for the support.
