Replacement MACH bulbs ?
One of my hid's turned purple the other day so i figure i should replace them. any low price recommendations ? i found these. and would you rather have stock 4300k or 6000k ? soley for the purpose of better light output not looks.

I like HIDs with 4300, they look like normal lights, only brighter. My $0.02.

When my bulbs go I'm gonna get them from here....
They have more color options too; The Phillips D2S is OEM btw.

Another vote for 4300K, I really don't like anything over 5K.

Moving too far away from 4300K in either direction will reduce light output, so just stick with stock.

looks like ill order the morimoto 3fives in 4300k. 50 bucks isnt a bad price.

I've been debating picking up a set of the Osram Xenarc 66240 CBI's when my tax return comes in. They are a little pricey (~185 a pair) but the reviews over at say they are well worth it.

i saw those , theyre nice. but i ordered the morimoto 3fives. hopefully they will be ok.

atleast there not the 12.99 with free shipping d2S bulbs on ebay. i cant imagine those would last but a few days.

I had one go out and piicked up a pair off of ebay for maybe 40 bucks shipped. I think mine are 6000s. (whatever the whitest is) Ive had no problems for about a year now.

thats pretty good for ebay bulbs. i didnt want to take a chance at buying junk ones , but im not expecting all that much from the morimotos for only 50 either.

Just a little side info. These bulbs for the High Beam and Fog Lamps match the color of the factory HID's that you are looking to replace.

Hoen Bulbs
H10 (Fog Lamp) $39.00 Pair
H7 (High Beam) $39.00 Pair
