Have yet to see them in person. I assume there is a nice color output but very little light. Everything about 8,000 is too much.

It will work if the lights are hid. They burn much cooler and efficiently than the stock halogens. You should definitely buy projectors though, because the lights will be so bright that they'll blind the people in front of you. Projectors help to focus the light beam.

un trato en espanol:

lo puedo funcionar si los luces 'hid' son reales/autenticos. la temperatura de 10000k hid es menos caliente que la temperatura de 4300k halogen (el color de factoria). los hid's queman mas frios que halogens.

aunque, lamparas proyectores son necesarias porque los hids son muy brillantes, y los proyectores ayuda la luz para ser en foco.

lo siento, no soy un experto de espanol. I thought it might help, and practice is good.

An H7 HID kit will work just fine in your halogens. In fact, if you purchase Projector46's later on, the same HID kit will work with the Projector46's

I agree. If you get 8000k, they'll be plenty purple. Not as much light output though

anything over 8000k is too colorful.. no visibility gains.. if you want a light tint of blue and gain visibility.. i say go with the Prolumen 6000k kits.. check out this thread for lighting..
