4100-4300 is white.
actually, if you refer to the kevil scale, you'll find it more pure around the 5000-5500ish level, there is a lot of yellow at the level you've mentioned, they may appear more white at dusk/night but just bright yellow in the day.

you also run 8500k in your high beam fitment correct? I do believe you can find them on
http://www.automotivelightingusa.com but as suggested in the "Kelvin Scale" thread below, running somehting that blue wouldn't be good for vision. I'd suggest 50-5500k becasue white looks a helluv a lot better than yellow and provides way more light than blue would be able to.



this is along the lines of something you are looking for? what bulb are you running for your lowbeam? anyway, this will have everything you or anyone else is interested in as far as automotive lighting is concerned.

Hey Anthony do you still have stock housings?
Before I got my hella housings I had some different bulbs in my stock housings and they started to melt them. They were really blue. I would get some new housings if you dont have them before you buy bulbs.
