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.
