Yes, you are correct it is a well known fact the 4300k HIDs provide better light output.mn1028 said:Isnt it true that the lower kelvin rated HIDs provide "more light" than the higher ones?
Is it all temperature then? Does using different gases produce different colors?gtpark81 said:seems like our HID dont have the cool blue color taht alot of HIDs do....can anyone explain why? HIDs start off blue then gradually turn to the normal looking lamp color.
Ooooops, I am sorry for passing on false information but you are correct. All factory HID's are rated at 4300k(found this after doing some research). I will change my original post, so that i do not confuse anyone.FasStAsS_sTi said:see now thats not entirly true ganson, every HID equipped car that comes from the factory is actually rated at 4300, i was told this by an HID manufactureer that supplys to bmw's, lexus, and other manu.'s but they do make the 8k bulbs though, as to why it looks different is becasue of the projiecters as i stated earlier! =)
Ya I hate those HIDs on like the miata and some cars where it looks like a stock bulb from some angles, then multicolored or purple, like its being ran through a prism... very annoying.STi_Thunder said:The HIDs on Audi's look purpleish from certain angles ... pretty annoying ...
