I believe 5000k is the brightest white you can get, most opt to go for 6000k such as myself. Mostly white with just a hint of blue. If you just google it you will see a million pictures. The brightness will come between 35w and 55w lights. 55w are very bright. I have 35w in my lows and fogs and 55w in my highs.

I have the same 6k 35w in lows and fogs 8k 55w in highs. With 55w it washes the color out thats why I went with 8k in my highs. I have the all on mod as well Its so nice to be able to see on county hwys at night.
