6000K or 8000K chromiums

Just wondering if anybody had pics of both of these angel eyes. Can't decide on which ones to buy.

Personally, I like the bluish tint of the 8000K's. Whatever goes with your car though, really up to you!



From left to right, 3000K, 8000K, 4500K, 6500K.

I highly recommend you stick with the 6000k. The 8000k IMO is a bit too aqua/blue. The 6000k provides a nice pure xenon white output.

If the rest of your lighting setup is stock or 6000K (headlights and fogs), then I'd say go with 6000K. If it's 8000K setup, then I say 8000K chromiums to match them up.

i totally agree, my friend who has a 325Xi has 8000K angels and headlights (see sig) im running 8000K headlights and 6000K fogs with 6000K angels and i really like this set up, the 8000K does look to aqua/blueish...
