Is changing color temperature ***8220;6000K***8221; an upgrade? Brightness is not correlated with color.

There's not enough information to really be of help. You give no model/model year information or if you're referring to Halogen or Xenon/HID headlamps...and the facelift and prefacelift have two different Xenon/HID headlamp set-ups. The early models were offered with xenon/HID (low beams only)...the facelift models were offered with adaptive bi-xenon (uses same bulb for low & high beam)...see pic below.

Also, you may want to just do a simple google search to make sure you understand what Kelvin ratings are (because changing your bulbs to 6000k wouldn't be an "upgrade" regardless if halogen or HID).

Help us help you better...provide a bit more info as to what you have and where you want to go with your modification. :)
