you should PM propr'one for more info on HID kits, he can get it for a good price, I believe that's where Fab got them from, they should cost around $250

I'll never understand why people want to have blue headlights..

I guess there's maybe one reason... so you can see worse at night.

Im not really a fan of blue, I like my purplish look better... Its 6000k but it's purple so it stands out more than blue IMO...

Its funny now cause more and more cars come standard with HID nowdays... In 2000 it was a great deal cause even 4000K HID looked very different when almost every car on the road uses halongen, Now people (and manufacturers) just upgrade with higher Kelvin as more entry level cars come standard with projectors and HID options...I wonder what will happen in the future, will the K rating keep going up on cars until its shining pure blue light? lol...

I'm looking at getting a HID kit for an H13 bulb for a Lincoln Mark LT, do you carry any? looking for 4300 or 5000K. Something not to ricey, a nice stock look.

if he is asking for HID don't you think that means he doesn't have HID's, and besides American cars were the last ones to put HID's in their cars.

Manufacturers use 4000-4500k at the most... at whatever point the whitest light is.

Why? Because the point of having HID's is to be able to see BETTER... not to look cooler. Manufacturer's know this, and would never start to put in high colour temps to just "distinguish" themselves. HID lighting is a passive safety feature. You don't see other safety features that trickle down to mid/entry level cars reduced/diminished.

anything over 6000k is gay... your upgrading u'r lights to reduce your light output, there's something everyone should do :huh?:

The human eye cannot see blue light very well, so regardless of the increased lumen's, the colour temp at such a level just makes everything worse again.

As for purple (which is in the 12000k range - almost or is UV light) is even gayer. Blue and purple headlights don't look good and perform even worse.

6000k is just on the verge of being too blue, but the majority of the light projected is white.

And to all you people who put HID's into non projector/halogen headlamps... kill yourselves.

I just will never understand why people pay money to "upgrade" a car, when they're actually downgrading it.

Dont get me started man. Sure, 8000K may be more blue than practical.

But i'm not going to start explaining to you about projectors, ellipsoids, light refraction angles, etc.

8000K in one type of headlight can look like 6000K in another.

The blue/purple hue one can see from looking @ a headlight at different angles is not what I'm talking about.

and 8000K bulb is BLUEer then a 6000K bulb which is BLUEer then a 4000K bulb.

No matter how you look at it.... If your choosing a higher colour temperature you going to get a BLUE (or purple) light... not a WHITE light.

That no headlight housing is made 100% the same is a given, but the controlling factor here is the colour temp. of the bulb.
