Okay..I just went back outside and took some close ups pictures of the headlights and sort of played with the leveler and leveled them out a bit. I realized that it only looks more blue-ish due to my camera flash. I do admit there is some tiny bit of bluish hue coming out the projector..but its more of a glare (similar to the bluish glare that emanates from silverstars)...Anyway look at the pictures and judge for yourself whether my 6k HIDs are identical to TMAC's 6k HIDs(see this link: http://www.bmw-forums.com/forum/inde...owtopic=29034) NOTE: Regardless my dissapointment with the the lack of blue (which is trivial) I'm still very happy with the performance of these lights and I reccommend them and Umnitza as well.

whats wrong with pure white hids????? if you ask me that is ideal. When you get higher temp hids, you loose some brightness. that is why your lights projection is so amazing, even 90ft away you can see a clear cut off

Hey Delmarco, I have a site that shows how to aim headlights properly. I'll forward it to you when I get home.

By the way, I think your lights look great.
I got 5000K, I hope they are not too far off from yours.
Did you get the low beam failure?

no ....but my car literally died for like 4 days...those HIDs drained my batteries...because I installed them and tested them without changing the fuses and forgetting to unplug my batteries.

Anyways, I did some research before I bought my HID's and I found a site/thread that had a fix. Basically you clip some wires under the driver's side dash and connect them. Everyone seemed very happy with the fix.
