35w isnt going to be as bright as 55w. And the 35w has more more blue to them no matter what color temp you get IMO. I have had 35w 8k and now I have 55w 6k and like the 55 much much better. So I would definitely suggest 55w

I agree with 55w but I have had ALOT of hids and DO NOT recommend going anything over 5k


6k is way too blue!!!

The reason I got HIDs was to be able to see better. 5000k is the best option for this.

5k is the way to go!!!

6k looks like a ricer... I have had 6k and my brother has 6k in his accord... he wants to change his to 5k after seeing my current 5k setup.

I resell hid kits in Spokane and trust me, if you don't want ugly/ricer blue... don't get 6k
