    Anything over 4300k is losing brightness. Anything over 6000k is just ridiculous.

    That's because they are worthless as headlights. Not even as bright as the cheapest halogens you can buy.

    4300k is the best color for headlights. The higher numbers don't work in the rain.

    I did 6000k for low, 4300k for high, and 3000k for fogs.

    You need a conversion kit for the fogs too?

    Yeah you don't need a housing conversion kit for the fogs just the wiring, the 881 Silver star bulbs work really good, I have them on my T/A but they are not HIDs they look good tho.
