For comparison purposes, which of the four are closest to OEM? and what would the OEM be rated?
Our stock HID's are 4300k. This is the purest/whitest light there is for night driving. As you go to either side of the range vision will suffer. Will you notice it? Dunno. I have seen/driven 6000k lights and during the day they are more noticeable from outside the car as they have a blue-ish tint to them, but at night I didn't see as well driving vs my car with the stock 4300k lights. The output light was "softer" and seemed to "fade" at distance... YRMV
