If I was going to get HID's I would either get 4300k or 6000k. My ex-girlfriend had on 05 Acura TSX which had factory HID's and the color temperature was 4300k.

Perfect brightness if you ask me!

4300k usually gives the most light, 6000k gives good light too but with a little more blueish color. 6000k is the highest color temperature I would go.

I have run 4300 in all my rides and that is the nice bright white, I just put 6000k into my ranger and it's just to blue I will certainly stick to 4300 from now on!

4300 is def pretty much pure white... 6k will give out a lil bit of blue tint which looks the best IMO... both will be on sale this weekend btw

You got any pics of what your 6k kits look like Raul? Cause the kits I get the 4300 look just plain awesome but like I said I picked up a 6k kit and it's way blue I have prob put in 20 kits and I usually tell people if they like the OEM look to go with 4300 but decided to do something different and it was a big difference.

What does a kit consist of? Is it just a Bulb and harness - thats uses the stock lenses, plug and play? What are the pros & cons - super bright but short life?

My plan is go with a 55w 5000k setup. Should be about as white as you can get and lots of light.

i had 4300 in mine loved it! my friend had a set of 10K lying around and we wanted to see what it looked like so we stuck them in and i pretty much do not like them IMO...4.3K is the best out there. 10k is just way toooo blue for me and i found myself over-driving them all the time even with tilting the headlamps up it was just crazy. anyway thats my 2 cents worth...
