www.understeer.com

go to either site, and drop 'em an email or give them a call. both are EXTREMELY knowledgable as far as HID's are concerned and can answer any question you've got.

One note though, these are competing businesses, so this is NOT an advert for one or the other.

I am in NZ, but 5000-6000k seems to be pretty ok by all cars.
if you use 8000k in a European car and can still get away with it
but you will be in trouble if you use 8000k in a Jap car.

Anyway, 6000k is the brightest. Anything higher you loss the point of having HID in the first place (to see the road ahead clear)
