6k is much bluer... if you have oem 4300k xenons, either buy 4300k angel eyes (available through jlevi) or buy 6k halos and upgrade your oem bulbs to 6k xenon bulbs so everything matches.

Check out my setup pictured below... all 6k (its pretty blue)

6000k provides a pure white with a hint of blue. If you want to stick with your OEM angel eyes, get the 4300k versions we have.

However, as 2000_328ci noted, I HIGHLY recommend you upgrade your entire lighting setup to 6000k with our 6000k low beam D2S bulbs, 6000k Predator Chromiums. You can complete the look with our xenon white LED turn signal bulbs and 6000k ProLumen HID kits.

Here are the various product pages. Since we are running a GB special on ProLumens, they are not on our website but are available for purchase for $275 shipped.

Angel eyes, halos, demon eyes are all different names for the same thing. Predator Chromiums, which is what we carry, are a brand of angel eyes.

Glad I could help

The low beam xenon replacement bulbs in 6000k... can you still do high beam (push foward)?

And also is that the best price on 6000k replacement bulbs that you can do? Any offers or specials or group buys currently or coming up?
Thanks

My Ride: is dirty
5000K vs. 6000K (keep in mind that 5000K is whiter than 4300K as well)
