its not rice if there not blue.... or purple or pink...
a ****ty 35watt 6000k hid will produce in excess of 3000 lumen, and that will very on color temp and manufacturer and wattage there running at . 35,55,70,100watt the 100watters i heard are close to 20,000 lumens per bulb.

try this. search for HIR2, i think it's # 9012. these are 55 watt halogen bulbs, so they draw the SAME current, but the IR coating reflects more heat back in... so it's like an 1800 lumen bulb, for the same 55 watts. The filament location is IDENTICAL to the 9006, so the focus and aim is perfectly stock.

unlike "boosted" high watt bulbs, these will not burn out at 200-300 hours. They were originally developed for john deere tractors, and certain auto projectors (viper?) use them. $20 each at amazon. You have to trim one of the three mounting tabs, the electrical plug is identical.

I just did this to my mom's civic, with new housings as well. FAR better light control than HIDs (tried those too).
