:srsly: PISSES ME OFF.
the hid kit for low beams are 6000k. the leds for parking lights are also said to be 6000k. but this shit doesnt match. the leds are blue err. i was thinking to get 8000k hids to match the leds. would be like 40bucks for replacement bulbs(8000k)
what do i do. even if i were to replace the hid bulbs what if then it still doesnt match?

:vomit:

different company. Different parts. Comparing a single LED vs a headlight bulb is tough


My friend Silkk bought like 6 different sets of bulbs before finding fog lights to match his HIDs

i bought both from the same website but i hear what youre saying. i already emailed the people on if they thing the 8000k would match.
i mean it looks alright it just bothers me personally that theyr a bit different.

8k isnt bad..but like i said man you gotta let them break in..theyre not gonna be the rated color temp for a bit..6ks usually look lik 5k until they break in..so you might wanna wait before you go back and forth getting a million different ballast/bulb combos

yeah i hear ya now. hopefully the 8k works out and breaks in eventually to look even better. but i switched them out quick cause i was worried and the exchange time is 30 days so i went ahead and did it.
