Picture Request: E46s with BiXenon & Ultinon 6k HID

Seeing as all the search results don't have pictures, I thought I'd ask again

4300 vs 6000k comparison would be great, but please only Ultinon 6ks

Thanks

no def not ultinons are a far superior bulb and color/output varies btwn manufacturers. To the OP check out some HID forums... light modding here doesnt go much beyond the sponsors bulbs and angel eyes.

I got the Ultinons... Also had the prolumens I think.... Can't remember exactly which ones they were... The Ultinons are a bit more pink/purplish than the other ones when they first came on. Both were rated at 6K.

Personally I prefer the Ultinons... they look a lot "whiter" when warmed up.

I'll try and snap a picture of the bulbs tonight...

Here's the 4300K Stock Phillips bulbs....

Thanks Brandon, would like to see the Ultinons when you get a picture.

I have found my Osram Xenarc to be more blue then the Philips 4300K bulb I have.

If they look different then the measurement is off. That is like saying "Stanley makes a superior ruler and their inch markers are a little bit wider."
