So my friend just got some 8000k HID's in his Titan and those fuckers are bright and classy looking. Side by side they make my hyperwhites look like stock bulbs lol, so I think I'm gonna get some for my truck.

What series should I go with? 4000K? 6000K? 8000K? 10000K?
Pics would be greatly appreciated!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you get more of a purple tint as you go up in the K rating? And more yellow as you go down?

Does anyone make a decent projector or housing for the obs? I want to get some black projectors but they all look sketchy and I already have a 6000k kit ordered up. I don't want a f*cked up dispersion from the hids.

Thanks for the pics guys.

What about the fog lights? I don't really wanna spend another couple hundred on the fogs, so do you think I should keep my hyperwhite foglights with the 8000K headlights or get some hyperblues?

if you buy from DUB (which i highly recommend) i would get 6000k. After comparing my 8000k and tfunit's 6000k i would get the 6000k simply bc over time the light output will decrease and the 6000k kit from DUB has almost as much blue tint as the 8k's

HIDs run a lot cooler than halogen bulbs. you'll be fine with HIDs.

Would it be a good idea to disable the twilight (automatic headlights) feature before installing HID? Also, on my wife's vehicle with factory HID, her HID's stay on when the high beams come on...Do I need one of those 4-Hi kits?

I've heard to extend the life of the bulbs, you don't need to keep striking that arc when they first come on...Turn them on and leave them on is the advice that I've received.

PM Makers Mark for questions. He has them for $230 shipped with a 12 month warranty.

In his group purchase thread I read that the automatic headlights won't hurt it at all.
