My dad has a '97 540i with the regular halogen low beams, he wants to get some replacements that are more white. would something around 6000k color be good for visibility as well as color? Also where have any of you gotten your bulbs? sorry im too lazy to do a search

Too lazy to do research so you make us do it? Just joking and .....I have 98' 528i and I have Silvania SilverStars and some people who have driven my car have actually mistaken them for xenons. If I remember right they are like $15-$20....Not bad, unless your Dad wants xenons, which are awsome, but again they aren't too much better they the Silvania's. And xenons will put a big hole in your wallet....

6000k is not a good color nor as bright. the maxium brightness is in the 4000k area. Anything over just appears blue/purple.
