Re: Please post pics of 4300K vs. 6000k non projector HID's. (sleepygti28)

I like the color on those. Not yellowish at all. Not sure if my Ecode housing would make a difference. i doubt it would.
I like the whiteness of that. (6000k)

I believe the E-Code headlights will only make a difference in the beam pattern and that's about it.
And Thanx, the color is a pure crisp white. I love my HIDs.
The only thing I dislike about them is the fact that they have a bluish tint @ certain angles. And I'm tired of seeing BLUE everywhere!

what brand hids are those?
talk about massive glare

I know!!!
But I thought glare was caused by the reflectors of the stock headlights, right?
I want projectors but I don't want to get DEPO projectors though. I wish HELLA made some projectors without HELLA Celis Rings.

Or I could get the MKV look headlights, those don't look that bad.

Later

thanks man. thats some intense blue hid color....i guess its because of the projectors

that's one of my reasons why i don't want projectors also cuz some projectors due to the lens i believe, turns the light output into a really strong blue or purple light color.

i just don't know

and nice work btw on the custom projector headlights. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (jetta98k2)

The lincoln is either 4100k or 4300k (same difference).
Wow 8000k, i think thats too high for me. I want more white then blue...and definitly not yellow (like the 4300k)

Yes and no.
A projector TOTALLY distorts the light to create 'other' colors - usually it's blue/purple.
But this occurs only at the cutoff.
From my car (mk3). I retrofitted OEM MK4 Golf HID projectors into my MK4-Look lamps (so basically this is an OEM MK4 HID pic):

Notice on the left side right on the cutoff there is a thin line of blue?
This translates (at a distance) to a much thicker blue band.
When you see this color you are looking at the cutoff.
The reason the right side doesn't have it is b/c I actually tinkered with my projectors (as a project) to make that blue band. I hadn't gotten to the other side yet.
So, not all projectors have that effect as "badly" as others.
