6k hands down. Check out this comparo pic with our ProLumen D2S 6k Bulb and Stock 4300k. Notice the nice pure white light output Here are a few full 6k setups as well (D2S, Predator Chromium, 6k ProLumen HID fogs, Xenon White LED turn signals)

Go with 6K. It gives off a pure white color with a purple tint. Versus the 8K and 10K, the good thing is that you don't lose a lot of light output with the 6K compared to stock.
