are you sure its the bulb? take a picture of what it looks like on the ground. if youre looking at the car and they look purple then well thats like that on all of them. it changes depending on how you look at it. the bulb itself is 4300k but the project lens reflect a purplish tint which changes to blue and purple depending on the angle you look at it. its normal unless on a white pavement it looks purple on the pavement while driving then that is not normal. should be white with a hint of blue on the pavement
