Halos to match 8000k Xenoflos?

I have a pair of 8000k Xenoflo bulbs which I love, but my Predators don't match. I then ordered the 8000k Predator rings hoping for a match, but they weren't any better than the standard 6000k ones, they just had less light output and no blue hue. From reading some of the threads it seems like the Titanium DDE's might match better, but does anyone know if I can use those rings with my existing Predator wiring and ballasts? Any pics would be great!

You can order a set of our Predators in 8000k, they are a special order but it's possible

That's what I did order but they don't have any a blue hue to them at all and don't come close to the blue of the 8000k Xenoflos. They look just like my old 6000k rings yet slightly dimmer.

Here are a couple pics of them installed, and yes I know I have the low-beam ring on too far back, that's why it is at an angle.

There's a chance you were accidentally shipped 6000K ones, although it's so hard to tell from photos.

They have black wires on the rings, which I am told is for 8000k, I just thought that they would have an actual blue tint to them like pics on the website show. Maybe I'll end up switching everything back to 6000k, I don't like having stuff not match.

Here is a pic of both the 6000k and 8000k Predator rings. The left side of the car is 8000k and the right side of the car is 6000k. You can barely tell a difference, is it possible there was a mix up because they should look significantly different.

HMM, looks like the exact same color to me, just that the 8000K's are a tad brighter..
