uhm, if its an actual authenitc 4300k kit it WILL be blue. it would have a hint of blue and purple in there.

its ur decision, personal preference. i was gonna get projectors and stuff and have them installed in virginia but i need to be able to tkae a trip down there and make sure theyd fit before sending them the headlamps.

its what you wanna do
Wrong!

Wrong!

Yes!

If you buy a good brand you will Not have flicker issues, Only if there Bad.

4300K is Not Blue, it is Almost pure White, Anything higher then 4300K will be blue and anything lower will be more yellow

And yes, it is Not recommended to put HID'* in stock housings, Projectors will Look Allot better and will not be blinding to other drivers.

For more great info and help check out http://hidplanet.com/main.html



this is a ok chart, but you'll get the point
you may be right, but if you purchase an authentic philips 4300k hid kit, its going to be blue. not super blue like a 6000k but it will be blue.

There isn't a ton of HID experience on BC. Before anyone buys anything, I encourage you to do plenty of research elsewhere on the internet. Maybe find a local store knowledgable in HID and ask a lot of questions.

Maybe present the info on the ClubGP group buy?

I was referring to this, because I bet over 500 people on ClubGP have them, and I am sure if "they were trash", that so many people wouldn't be buying them.
But way to look like an *** bandit...

They really wont be. Maybe as they begin to colorshift but not with new bulbs.

and I bet over 500 people on my college campus smoke weed and other drugs everyday.

Does that make it safe and healthy?

people are buying them because they are miss informed and think that anything brighter is better. Too bad its not.

Alright, opinions have been posted, but no minds have been changed on either side. Please do your research elsewhere. Explr1, feel free to post a link for interested parties to the CGP group buy in a new thread.
