Thanks, Hammer!

I went with hidextra.com's 35w 6000k kit. I wasn't expecting it to be so blue since they called it "brilliant white" lol. Probably would've been whiter if I had gone with 55w ballasts.

The wattage doesn't have anything to do with color. The temp (6k) is the color. If you would have gotten 5k then they would have been whiter. I have 55w 6k's in my fogs and they are as blue as yours

Oh ok, I'm still trying to learn everything about HID's. I was told the higher wattage would make it whiter. Lots of misinformation out there!

I'm happy with them either way, waiting for the sun to disappear so I can show 'em off

First time user...first time interested in HID. I am seeking info on recommendations for changing out stock headlight setup to a HID setup. Any ideas?

Looking good! I could have saved a bunch of money over the years by asking first. Duh...hate being a dummy sometimes. I have learned...the hard way.

You can find cheaper hid's online but it is hard to beat Jeremy's customer service. If you have a problem he will make it right. I will pay extra for that.
