Re: HID lights

4300k will be the brightest Kelvin available without being yellow. I have them in my wifes Ford Edge they look great and the 4300k is what most OEM use. Retro is top notch for products and Service before and after the sale.

Re: HID lights

I have 8k Xenon on mine but my truck is white, I wouldn't go higher than 6k on "colored" truck, IMO.. the blue hint is conflicting and clashing.
I think 4k-5k is a good choice, that's "super white" no yellow.

If I might make a suggestion, if you go to HID's , update your corner and clearance lights to LEDs, it looks sharper..

Re: HID lights

I'll post enough about it for everyone to catch it

As for how much of a discount, no clue yet.

Anything helps though.
