5000K vs 6500K HID

I am looking into getting the extreme HID conversion kit from xenon depot for my 07 srt8. I want to avoid the stock yellow light look but I also want to avoid having too blue of light. I know 5000K is very white but does anyone know if there is any yellow in it? Is the blue seen from the 6500K really that blue or is it only a hint of blue? I am asking this because I haven't seen a good comparison of the two and I am worried that the 6500K will look like the cheap very blue halogen bulbs that a ton of people use to mimic true HIDs. Any info or pictures would be a great help.

I would personally go with 5000k. They are pure white. No yellow in it.

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

5000k is white with a tiny hint of blue. i have them in my WK right now but am switching to 4300k because i dont like the 5000k (a little too blue) 6500k will look very ricer (blue) and will not be as bright.

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

I have tried the 4500k, 5000k and 6500k and I prefer the look of the 5000k personally.

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

I currently have XenonDepot 5000K and love them - they are PURE WHITE. They start up a little blue, but they go white. I've had 6000 and 6500's, both with slightly more blue than the previous. I've not had 4300, but i do like the 5000's - check my build thread for some light output pics.

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

Is the 5000K noticeably blue aka typical ricer blue? I really don't want to look like a ricer. And from this I gather that 5000K is pretty much white with a hint of blue and since I want to avoid yellow and ricer blue this is probably my best bet.

SvenskaJeepGuy is there any way you could post a pic or two of your lights from the front and from inside looking out?

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

You dont look at the 5000's and go "man, those look kinda blue"....you say "damn, those are white.....in fact, i dont even know if i notice the blue" Again - i have 5000 output pics in my build thread and i have XenonDepot's kit - not sure if the others have a diff experience.

Re: 5000K vs 6500K HID

I have had the 5000 and 6500k Xenondepot xtreme HID's in halogen 07 housings and I think the 6500K would DEFINETELY be too blue for you. 5000K will be perfect. I have 5000K d1s xenondepot bulbs now if my 08+ projectors
