Not really brighter but a different color spectrum..I think. If you are putting them into stock housings then look into getting some caper shields to keep the glare down. I've heard the ones on eBay for 70 bucks are not too shabby. As for the bulb I believe you need the H4 or 9002 bulb, might want to double check that though.

3000k is going to be more of a yellow. i think 12000k is purple, correct me if i'm wrong. i put an 8000k kit into a buddies rsx with stock headlights and it looked fuckin titties. wasn't too blue, but they were bright

the only thing that i get confused about HIDs is when people talk about retro-fitting and how they're better in projection headlights and what not. don't mean to thread-jack but care to explain?

hid's in projector headlights gives you a better cut-off. less scattered light in other words.

check this guys setup. fuckin awsome!



and this one! sick!



check out these links. lots of info.

my HIDs on the EF from camp1320 :TU: more expensive than the ones on my EG but about the same light output.






cutoff? who cares these are aimed down towards the passenger side ne wayz



have not been hi beamed in my EG with the egay 6k, but once from a new lexus(with HIDs mind you) in my EF.

my 6ks look way bluer than they are since the fogs were on. lights are aimed way too far down since my adjuster wont go up anymore but still not blinding.

4200K is the brightest...

the higher you go you just change the color of the light and lose a lil brightness...

i went with 4200k with a custom blue tint, this way, it has the brightness as well as the color i wanted...

My wife bought me mine from CQlight.com. I got the 6500k high/low kit. It's very clean and minor blue light. DON"T get the dual bulb or high/low crap like I did. the high beam sucks. Half the time it gets stuck and doesn't work. I'm going to go single when one dies and get some projectors to retro.
