Matching OEM Lights to Predator Chromium Color

Problem:

I had Predator Chromiums recently installed and they look great. I bought them from Umnitza before you could specify which color you wanted, so I guess they'd be considered stock color, they burn a nice whiteish\blue (I'm not sure the Kelvin degree). However they don't match my OEM non-Xenon yellowish colored lights. Are there bulbs that I could purchase for my head lights\turn signals\side markers\fog lights to match my Predators? Thanks.

You can get a set of D2S 6K bulbs to match them.

the pred's color should be 6000k or 6500k, for the front, rear turn signals, and sides, you can get the LED whites which are 6000k to match the angel eyes. i don't think there are bulbs for halogens that match that kelvin temp. but there are some that match the oem xenons. hope that helped

Makes sense, thanks. Doesn't JLevi offer some kind of full 6000k kit or something?

These LED turn signals are simply amazing colorwise and perform great on the road.

The great thing about living in Quebec is the turn signals and side markers don't have to be amber.. they can be white too. I guess that's one small pro... the cons of getting your vehicle smashed up on these crappy roads is a nother story

BTW, do fogs have the same problem with the regular head lights (no non-HID 6000k bulbs?)

It's not a problem per se, it's just how lighting works.

www.umnitza.com - look at the tutorials section under HELP.
