That is not going to be easy because I cut some wire that were not needed with the HID's but needed with rhe regular bulbs. Didn't really have a choice either during install

I'm really looking forward to getting mine installed. I'm still waiting on my HID kit to come. I got 35w 8000K 9006, should be really nice.

Isn't 8000k going to be REALLY blue, almost purpleish?

8000k will look purple. My friend has 6000k in his wk and they look blue to me. imo 4500ish is the best temperature. 8000k you're going to lose a significant amount of light output, I actually wouldnt be surprised if they're not as good as, or worse than sylvania silverstars as far as light output goes

I wanted to try and 8000k because I've seen the 6000k in person and wanted to see how I liked the more blueish color. If I don't like them I can just pickup another set of 6000k bulbs from ddmtuning for about 13 bucks

This is true they are not to expensive. And it varies in color with the different wattage 35 or 55. I have 6000K @ 55 watts and to me there is no hint of blue in them what so ever. they are just white white haha. They are blue ish for about 15 seconds when they are warming up

the 55 watt blaster wash out the color a bit.
a 55w 8000k will look similar in color to a 35w 6000k kit

I agree, I have silverstars in my Accord, and they are awesome...bright white, and I wouldn't want any blue'er (spelling???) From what I've seen, the whitest and brightest is goign to be in the 4000 to 6000 range, with 5000 being the brightest whitest. Just like the color chart on ddmtuning.com

Did a bit of 4x4'ing today! At least it sees mud and such. My stock height feels so laughable with so many people running lifts!

Nice WJ so far bro. Looks good and once you get your lift and tires Im sure it will look sick!! Anyways, Not sure about him but I'm waiting on some CCFL halos and a 6K HID kit.

Planning on adding the install to my build thread so keep a look out for that if your interested. I should be getting them by early next week.... Super stoked!!!

Here is mine with the UV Lumincs halogen bulbs... They are nice but not bright enough for me... Cant wait to see what those HID's are going to be like!!! How do you like yours? Any regrets?

Fogs are PIAA 525's
