What K

are 4200K good light and color quality on p46s?

cause when i buy the projector46 from umnitza... no light bulb comes with it
so only thing that lights up are the predators not the headlights

i may get this

but i want it to be either white or white/purple

and these bulbs are 4200k so im not sure... is it same color as halogens?

If you want that white/purple hue I think you'll need to get at leat 6000K. I could be wrong though. In my opinion if you're going going to buy P46s, you mine as well go all the way and buy a nice set of bulbs a well.
