9006 bulbs and 5000k is what you need. That'll give you the most white light. 6000k and up your light starts to turn blue and you reduce the lumens.
Was there supposed to be a link there? lol

Next time I would like to try HID kit. But for now since I ordered the Intense White PIAA 9006... I installed them this Am. In the photo the Passenger side is the new PIAA and driver'* side stock bulb.
Will try it out tonight and see how they look.

This was my first chance with my new to me Park Ave to get on the highway. I have to say it loves the highway and so do I ...in it !
The design/styling (overall looks) are great. I think I am really going to like this car!

9006 bulbs and 5000k is what you need. That'll give you the most white light. 6000k and up your light starts to turn blue and you reduce the lumens.
Thanks, I meant to say 5000k, I want the diamond white, or "pure white", I do not want any hint of blue in them..
Thanks for the link, I'll save it and get them after I get a few mechanical repairs done..

Are the 55w'* too bright for normal low beam replacement?
If so the 35W ballast/kit should be fine, as it is still brighter than what I have now.

Would I need any of the accessories other than the mounting brackets?
Like the HID Harness, Error Eliminator and H1/H7 to 9006 Adapter cables?
I have 9006 lights that I am replacing, so my harness should be the 9006...

35W kit is more than enough. 55W tends to throw a ton more scatter, even in projector housings like I have.

What you'll need to do is select 9006 for the bulb type so it fits in your housing. 35W ballasts, and 5000k for the color. Because of your year I'm also going to recommend getting the HID harness. It'* a relay that connects directly to your battery so that the "surge" of firing the HID lights doesn't go through your factory wiring.
