Hey im looking into ordering some HIDs but wanted to get all the bulb #'s fisrt. I've looked for about an hour reading threads and decided i would have better luck this way.
i need the #'s for the Fogs highs and lows
I am looking at 35w 6000k or 4500k lows; 35w 6000k or 4500k fogs; and 55w 8000k highs.
what would work the best. are 6k to hot for the fogs? i would like them to be a little blue though. and how much brighter are the 55w 8k as to the 35w 8k.
Thanks for the help
oh any pictures would be helpfull to to see what they look like.

i would go with the 35w 8k they have a bluish tint and will not run as hot as the 55w the brightness is pretty hard to tell a difference it isnt much brighter with the 55k.

if you want a little blue you should go with 10,000k. i have ran those for 2 years now and have had no issues with the 35w

remember that is my buddys 1500 chevy. not my sierra. 10k is pretty white from close up but from more than 10 feet away they are very blue. clear like 4500k is gonna be your brightest light.

his fogs donw get too hot but you sure can feel the heat.
he kept his highs the stock halogen for the flash to pass feature cause HIDS take some time to warm up.

ah gotcha. yeah i was looking at the colors on there site. 6000k and 8000k seem to be more what im looking for. probably 6000k lows and highs and 8000k fogs for the color.

9006 low
9005 high
H10 fog
i would match your fogs to your lows
i would do 35w 8000k lows and 8000k fogs
with 6000k highs
