If this request is for your headlamps I would advise against the change. The blue type lamps are terrible in the rain and snow. At night in the rain you can hardly see the road.

If you must try the Nokya Artic Blue lamp.

i'd suggest getting Sylvania Silverstars. I've had them in 2 of my Bonneville'* and had great results. I would only suggest them for the high and low beams. The fog lamp silverstars are constantly burning out at the rate of one a month or faster in our stock foglamp housings.

I think he'* referring to a 8000k and up hid kit...super illegal in a halogen housing. You could do it and possibly get away, but VERY illegal and VERY dangerous....just my .02

silverstars are not blue at all, nokyas are the bluest you are probably going to get (hard to see with but great look), I run streetglow hyperwhites, still not great visibility in the rain but the fogs make up for it.

yea, blue is bad..... Personally I run 8000k for the DRL'* they look pretty good from far away. The Highest I'd go would be right at 6000k that'* around the pure white/slight blue tint and that'* pretty tough to see in the rain.

Yeah if it is necessary I wouldn't go any higher that 6000k...but none the less hids in a halogen housing is illegal and dangerous no matter what the kelvin temp...if he wants to do it the right way, buy a set of projectors and do a retrofit, I wouldn't put hids in your headlights personally....if you must.....be careful
