i believe stock are somewhere in the realm of 5200k (not 100% sure) .. i am currently running 8000k its a nice bright almost purplish colour, but the trade off was that the light output isnt as dense as a stock HID.

4300k actually, that is the DOT requirement.

Most of our customers tend to go with the 6000k upgrade, it sacrifices barely any light output and gives you that nice crisp white look. Here is a comparison between the yellow 4300k and our 6000k bulbs (left 6000k, right 4300k)

The DOT requires car manufacturers to go that low? If that's so, why are we allowed to go higher? Just curious. I have 6000K.
