Question GP Thunder

Which of those GP Thunders are a little purple color. And where is the best place to order them.

Thank you in advance

Both of those bulbs pictured above would be the same color. We do carry those and have them in stock.

They are not purple IMHO, some pics here. Anyway, I'd like to compare them with the 7500k ones.

They do send to Europe, you have to wait a couple of weeks but it works, some other guys from the Italian forum bought them from that website.

V2s should be brighter than V1s.
