Default Hids

Need a lil advice here before I pick what color i want for my hids. Im debating between 4300k/4500k (is there a real difference?) or 5000k. I like the stock hid look but how does 5000k do in the snow because I hear that 6000k throws off a wierd glare and not sure if 5000k will at all. Any advice is welcome.

Honestly they're so similar, it doesn't matter. If you don't want ANY blue, get the 4500k. I like the blue, so I run 6 or 8k

all plugins are really poor, compared to a projector retrofit.

Do it right the first time and install a set of Morimoto Mini H1 Projectors.
