Check your local laws before getting them.... SOme states dont allow amber/yellow as a main headlight color. WOuld hate to see you come to find that out the hard way through a ticket.

ive had two sets of pilot hid's(8000k on my old truck and now 6000k on the car), i havent had problems with either, great output and great looks! ive got both sets for $100 shipped off a seller on ebay, i think his name is greathidkits. he wants like $140 for them, just send in a best offer that totals $100 with shipping.

4300k is white and 6000k is white/blueish. those are the brightest imo.

stay away from yellow unless its for your foglights.

Is it a good choice? Hard to say. I try to stay away from ebay any chance i can get. If you want good lighting there are several sites where you can get them cheap after discounts.

the only reason i say don't use yellow is because when i had yellow bulbs in i got pulled over about a half a dozen times for them...not worth it imo. but hey if you live somewhere where the cops arent assholes then more power to ya.

but i will say with yellow bulbs i could see everything!

copied from the link he posted

3000K has an approximately 3200lm output, which is more than 3x the light output of the traditional halogen light. 3000K emits GOLDEN YELLOW color and offers superior penetration power during adverse weather epically in dense fog. The applications of the 3000K kit aim more towards secondary lighting apparatus such as high beam and fog lights. The 3000K capsule is actually a 5000K capsule specially coated with a film that filters out all the wave length except the range of wave length which emits yellow. This is the color temperature that will catch all the attention on the road.
