Headlight and fog light upgrade?

Has anyone upgraded the headlight bulbs and fog lights to 6000k? if so, where did you guys get the bulbs and how do you like the new look?

Does your vehicle have xenons? 6000K will be less bright than OEM.

Yes, you really think the 6000k will be less brighter?

It will be more blue, but yes less bright. The higher up in temperature (K) you go, the less light output you get. Around 4500K is the sweet spot, and the OEM bulbs are 4300K.
