      Purple is the weakest. If you are getting and want the best brightness in the rain then Get 4300k. If you want the kinda cool look white with buleish tint then go with 5000k. Anything over that is just trash. Its not good in rain, plus dont last very long.

          Similar to whats said above

          for brightness get 4300 or 5000- above will diminish the light but look "cooler"

          Ive got a 4300k kit retro fitted (oem audi)

                  Most the BMW's I see...well atleast half of them have the 8000K (purple) HID's.

                  And what color, I mean what color does it put out....notice the difference in color in different temperatures? What color is 4300-5000k?

                      4300-5000k is white- closest to sunlight and are the optimum light output

                      above gets bluer, then purple etc may look cool/ricey but reduce light output on the road.


                      search on a good car forum like audizine.com for pics etc

                        That's because of the optics.

                          I've seen the difference....Side By Side actualy of Pure White HID's in a BMW Projector Vs. BMW W/Stock HID's and the BMW was purple. It was a BMW XA (I think thats right, the suv) next to my friends Honda Civic Hatch with modified Projector Housing (he used a BMW Housing)


                          Same with the Evo8 I was looking at and the 350Z...
