Lol. They go buy Temperature Colors. 4300k, 5000k, 6000k, 8000k, 10000k.

You should get 8000k because it's not too blue. But I suggest you just stay with 4300k-6000k to get the most light output. You also don't want to blind other people on the road. To bigger the nuber is the less light output there is. After 10000k is pure blue but the light output sucks.

Very blue lighting, as mentioned above, just scatters rather than lighting the road ahead of you. Even HID lighting with the proper projectors shouldn't be too blue. For safety, stick with proper bulbs rather than going for a look!

Re: Best non-hid pepsi blue bulb?

Do you want more Light output or less? Meaning do you want to be able to see at night or do you want to see less and blind others.

If you want to see go with either one of these temperature colors 4300k, 5000k, and/or 6000k. I wouldn't go over 8000k which is blue enough IMO. 10000k is pure blue.

For fog lights I would go with either 3000k which is yellow for bad weather like snow or rain, 4300k,5000k, and/or 6000k. And the most I would go with it 8000k.

Here's a Chart:
