Default H.I.D'*

http://cgi.ebay.com/8500K-BLUE-HID-X...QQcmdZViewItem

didn't know if this was a "Crock" or not, so I ask my fellow members Yay or Nay?

bulbs 8500k? I thought something this bright would cause problems (from intense heat) they also sell foglights in different colors,

what'* the deal on these? I'm sorry if this is a repost...........

8500k is the color temp. has nothing to do with output.

if you like blue HL and not being able to see anything go for it.

might I suggest something white...4100k to 4500k being optimal.

and BTW, those are not HID bulbs, they are standard halogen bulbs.

I know that, I guess they forget/neglect to state that it'* the "H.I.D" look, I'm running white ones now, I'm a little more partial to those purple ones

(the intensity from the bulb can damage the connectors) that'* what I read when looking at some aftermarket headlight bulbs, I forget the name but they were 55w and they stated they could damage the connections due to a lot of heat from the bulb itself,
