I am buying xenons today, should I get 4500k, 5000k, or 6000k?

I want blue but also preformance, 6000k is bluest, 4500 is stock color, I am leaning towards 5000k to have it be blue but white with preformance too, what you guys think?

4500k is not stock. 4100k is. 4500 is merely a 4100k with blue masking on it.
The higher color temp you go with, the less light output there is. Also the housing has more to do with the color than the bulb anyway. Plz dont just get a kit that fits in your existing housing. Your lights will have less distance than the halogens and cause horrible, dangerous and ILLEGAL glare.

If you really want the bluest you can get without sacrificing light output go with the 4500. I still think the 4100 looks the cleanest, but it's your car. Either one will be good, just stay away from anything higher than 6k because light output does get lost, and really all your doing is getting a more colorful light for a lot of money.

Okay...

I thought about it some more and I totally forgot to inform you of the 5,000k bulbs. Those are the bluest w/o sacrificing light output... see if you can get ahold of some of those.
