Maybe you bought 8000K or 8500K bulbs? They are not as bright, and can look very purple and aftermarket. Most factory HID lights fall in the 6500k to 7500k range. Our GP Thunder 7500K look great!!!

I find them almost at bright as the yellowish/stock BMW H8 bulbs. I tried them at night and in bright light, and do not find them purpleish at all. They are a true, crips white with a hint of blue!

I bought them on eBay. Seller ID: justpal

Located in CA. Free shipping. 3 pairs (6 bulbs) were $52.00

Sorry you don't like the GP Thunder. I think they look great, and they have such a clean, bright white light!
I got the 8500K. Bought them from e92 lighting who promised they were bright white and the "brightest bulbs". Not to happy with him or the purchase. He also didn't respond to some of my PMs. Maybe I can exchange them for the ones that are supposed to be whiter.
