It'* not going to melt but 12,000K is going to be very purple and not very much light output, I would say 10,000K at the highest, I like the 8,000K

I wouldnt go past 8k, your light output will go down. 6k is the most light you can use

Yep you need 9006 bulbs for the stock housing

nobody makes a housing for the Bonne, mine is completely custom

8000K will look like an iceburg blue in your housings, mine are actually a little more white than they look in the picture you see

The point of HID is to increase light, not change color. People that do it for color is the reason why other motorists hate HID lights. If you stick with the stock housings, I beg you to PLEASE use 6,000k lights, and not 8,000k.
