The number refers to the Kelvin Scale, which is the color. Difference in brightness is the watt 35w or 55w. The 35w ballast are PLENTY bright.

The color directly effects brightness. Wattage directly effects brightness.

4000-6000 is the brightest and pure white range. Marginal difference in color from 4000-6000. If you go below 4000k, you start sacrificing brightness for a more amber/orange tint to the light. If you go above 6000k, you start sacrificing brightness for more blueish to purple tint. The brightness does drop off significantly when you start pushing 8000+ or less than 3000. So while K is not a measure of intensity, it does directly effect the intensity.

Watts will make an overall increase or decrease. I have 55 watt 6000k HID's in my off-road lights. It is the sickest most insane amount of pure white light you will ever see emanate from a vehicle. Headlights are 6000k 35w HID's. Also insanely bright. You do not need to get 55w kits unless you really want to melt a hole in the troposphere.

Over here, cops have this very technical test for headlights using a white sheet of paper. If there's any other color than white, it's illegal.


Of course, factory installed hids are exempt, including mercedes pink/light purple-ish and bmw's blue kits.

Keep away from my locale. I'll shoot them out. Those blue and purple headlights are such crap, they are deserving of nothing less than a few armor piercing rounds.
