yeah i was looking at that but i was looking at getting some pics of some real time photo's like yeah they have a chart but it could be different and they said it also depends on the housing and stuff like that so what better place there here to see the true colors

Heres 8000K 55W on my 05 Crew Cab. I love these cuz they are just a lil hint of blue but are extremely bright. Sorry bout the shitty pic. Dumbass blackberry.

Nick the difference is the power output. The stock halogen light in out trucks use 55w. The 35w is just a lower power output. I.E. less heat and the colors don't wash out as bad as with 55W

Heres the difference: the headlights are 35w 5000K and the hellas are 55w 5000K there is definitely a difference and it is more noticeable in person... i wish i would have got the 55w in 6k.

Ya, all you have to do is mount a ballast, i think that there is a how to on here somewhere...
and get 5000k if you go with 35w and 6000k if you go with 55w it will be pure white and super bright:thumbup:

You can't really see it in the pictures, but in person there is a difference in the beam color. I wish they were the same...

I have 55w 6K in both low and fog (harness for each). Very nice. High beam (Silverstar Ultras) is a downgrade in output, lol. Blue tint on start up but before I am out of the garage at full white brilliance, no hint of blue.
