I just bought some HID's for my truck:veryhapp:, there
8000k 55w here is the Kit I just bought
This kit with the 8000k 55w, instead of the 8000k 35w, Is more white than blue
not sure if it's because its more out put or what...

First of all are they legal ?? and who else runs them

I don't see them being more white than blue. 8000k is where the blue spectrum is at. It begins I'd say at about 6000k.

And yes, they would be legal. Not sure why they wouldn't.

I run 6500k in my girls car and in my Integra and I run8k in my scion tc , no issues and my 8k dont really look much different from my 6500s

So to make them legal in a scene you need to have projector headlight
like the high end cars do ? At leats that's what Iv been reading anyway,
Because these hid bulb's have nondirectional light, Where the regular
halogen is a focused light. And thats where the projectors would come in handy, Right??

any aftermarket hid kit you buy will have a disclaimer that will say off road use only :p unless it comes factory, since factory hids have project which help to correct the beam, and auto leveling so you wont blind other people. the 55 watt kit will give you more output than the 35 watt kit. i usually recommend people to realign their headlights, but you can also have full force too lmaoooo

not legal unless D.O.T. approved i run 6k in my truk & 8k in my bronco . . the 6k are even somewhat blue 8k are very blue

There not legal but you will NEVER get a ticket for them. I know alot of people with HID's and not one as ever got a ticket for them. And yes 55w 8k will be more white then 35w 8k. I run 10000k 55w and they dont even look blue.

It says it right on the site. The 55w washes out some of the color so it looks like a step down on spectrum.

I bought 35w 6000s and 3000k for my explorer. I shoulda got 55w. Ill get some more soon.

I hate blue ones that you know are not oem hids , looks retarded. Anything over 6000 is too much for my taste
