What Temperature Hid?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

just wanted to gain opinions from those of you with HID installed on your is200. What temperature did you go for? I want a blueish tone, and from what Ive seen 8000k seems to be pretty good.

how hard was it to install on the lexus?

and is it a good bet to purchase kits of ebay for example these:

Forget eBay mate. Have a look at HIDS4U. Great kits, great quality and a fair price. I went with the 6000k temp. Anything more than that can look too blue I think, besides you lose brightness the higher you go.

I ran 8000K for a while and if you want some blue that's the way to go, 6000K is more white with a hint of blue and the 5000K I have now is pretty much pure white.

Standard 4300k to 6000k are for HIDs to help you to see better where you going at night. Above 6000k is for attention-seekers who don't mind trading pretty blue beams for reduced effectiveness.
