8000k hid
 
Has anyone heard of any issues with putting 8000k hid kits into the 06 wk? I thought I heard something about burning up the factory harness? Figured I'd ask around before I spent a couple dollars to f the oe harness up.

No thats not true, and its perfectly fine. Some people are going to tell you to put them into projectors, however, many people put them into their stock halogen housing

lol it will work but you will look like a tool using it. As long as you use 35w no matter what "K Temperature" you get they will generate less heat than the stock bulbs. Be responsible and stick between 4300k-6000k. I would say 6K is the best choice for you if you still want good output with the color that says "I have HID's"

talk to our vendor Xenondepot...they make one of the best HID kits there are available. They will also include relay harnesses so you dont have to worry about your oem harness. They will connect straight to the battery.

LOL had is the key word lol....... I would stick with 5000k-6000k if you want a blue tint. The higher the temp the less light output. I just recently went from 5000k to stock temp and i love it!

Yes the stock output is great, but if you have D2S that's why I love the Osram 66240 CBI's. They are the first capsules to achieve 3400 Lumens @ 5000k.
