    Bunch of questions about this. What are the recommendations for the temps for the fogs / lows / highs?

    Brief searching says 4300 for the foglights. What about lows and highs?

    What's a good temp for lows if you don't want to be blinding, but want better lighting?

    For highs, is the highest temp the best for the most possible light?

    Putting these in the stock housings won't melt them, correct?

    Do these pull a lot of power?

    Lastly.. is it possible to use a single ballast for multiple lights, or do you need one per light? Gets kinda crazy at that point

    not sure exactly about which intensity is best for vision, but I know that they actualy pull LESS power and run COLD so they wont melt or anything your wire harness/bulb
    what sometimes would was silvannya sylverstars or whatever. because they run ath igher wattage.... but thye dont make em for our cars anyways ! so oh well

    These are the ones I got that everybody says are the best. A bit pricey but they are on the way. I went with the 8000 for the lows and 6000 for the fogs (Getting ones for the high beams seemed pointless for the price) As far as heat goes they do get hot but no fires reported so far hahah And the 10,000 and up the guys say has a PURPLE hue to the so didnt like them. I like the blue look and if they are adjusted right wont blind other drivers.

    Actually the higher the temp rating the less bright the light is. 3000k is gold/yellow and a very good color for fogs because it provides high visibility. 4300k is OEM white, 6000k is pure white and is the brightest. 8000k is a light blue, 10000k is very dark blue but does not provide excellent visibility. if u go on ebay and type in HID the sellers give a list of the colors/temp ratings with pictures

    My lowbeams provide way more light than stock. As bright as 5000K lights, no...but the 10000Ks are way better than stock. Also, I have the beam pattern adjusted so that while I may lose a couple feet or so of beam, I'm not blinding the cars in front of me. Haven't gotten honked at yet.
