Does anyone know how to get DEEPEST BLUE HID out of the Lexus IS300? I've probably been through 3-4 different pairs from dealers who claim that they are the deepest blue. Is it the output from the ballast or am I just having no luck? Please can someone answer my question.

Look around ebay for 10k or 12k d2r bulbs. I have 8k and i think its perfect. It dead in the middle of white and blue. Deep blue is just asking to get pulled over.

6-8 is "perfect" 10-14 is just dumb and pointless
By perfect, you're describing light color, not superior light output...

8k sucks. Hell, for me, 6k sucks, and I'm rolling around on projectors. I hate giving up light to have lights that "look cooler"

perfect output is somewhere at 4300 if i remember correctly

I had a 14K kit on an old car one time, and it sucked a lot in the rain and night

I know alot of people know this, but there's still a huge misconception out there about the HID bulbs. The light output goes down as the number goes up, like these guys are saying if you want the "bluer" 8k or 10k be prepared for them to be dimmer than the 4300k stock bulbs.

Yea, the higher the number the less light output. But to be honest i had 6k and with the 8k i dont really notice a difference. Not to mention it looks friggen nice.
