the headlights are 4300K and the fogs are 6000K

Personally I think 5000K would be ideal... Those osrams that were mentioned earlier - where can I get them? I'm willing to pay a premium if it allows me to have my cake and eat it too (nicer color lights while still putting out more overall light).

Edit: Apparently the headlights are 6000K (Philips 85122WX). The fogs are probably 8000K or so then...

theretrofitsource.com is having a group buy over at hidplanet.com. Here's the link: http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/show...ust-see/page14

Get in while you can. The bulbs are going for $175/pair, only 15 pairs are getting shipped in from Europe.

Are they readily available in Europe? I've got a friend visiting Germany right now, I should see if he can pick me up a set..

It should be easier to source in Germany, but be prepared to pay a bunch of money for them.
