    A yellowish headlight works better in inclement weather also, thats why you'll see people with really yellow fog lights. But the white headlights do look cool.
    the blue film is not what is used on true HIDs, usually that is for the "ultrabright" halogen lights.

    I believe that the light output on the 6000k is a higher lumens than that of a 4300k bulb, I cant recall the website I looked at to quote.

    4300K is a purer white than 6000k. 6000k HID are closer to the cool blue spectrum.

    i am not talking about the lights that look brighter, but the cars with dual headlight reflectors-- one for lows and one for highs-- that makes it obvious that they have their brights on.

    don't get 6k-- i have them and they are too blue(makes it harder to see at night)-- i am planning on going to 4k once it drives me nuts enough

    Unless I'm misreading this... the center of the "neutral" tones is 4000, so 4300 WOULD be closer to pure white than 6000.... right?

    Malcom2073 is right, the picture above is not really accurate. I have a Acura TL 2004 with stock Xenon headlights and they are 4300k and looks more white then my friend's fog HIDs at 6000k (more blueish).

    I got myself some aftermarket 43000k fog kit and it's the same color as my headlights!

    I know this is older, but I wanted to register solely to thank the OP.

    Your DIY gave me a lot of info and courage to attempt this on my car. I had decided to to a quad projector retrofit to my headlights, and added demon eyes and led ring during the construction period. I wired a DPST switch to allow ON-OF-ON. Position 1 is red demon eye and position 3 is white led ring.

    Here are a couple pics. Hope you enjoy.
