Default HID Suggestions

So I'm about to order my HID's and I would really like to go with 3000K. I think it would go nicely with my truck and I like that its different than all the mofos driving around blinding people with their 12000K's. INPUT PLEASE WILL IT LOOK GOOD AND WILL IT BE BRIGHT ENOUGH???

The silver stars are poor compared to the HID's

Some might argue that you are more likely to blind someone with a 3000k/4300k (generally thought of as the "green/yellow" bulbs) than you are a 12000k.

those aren't the lights though, they look like the halos.

and if anything, 3k in your headlights will be HORRIBLE and anger other drivers even more. i've literally thought about ramming ricers with their faggot ass purple lights.
