I've been getting a few inquiries today about the difference between 7500K and 8500K, 7500K is more towards the white side. It's still got a blue hue to it, but compared to the 8500K, it's whiter. the 8500K, it's blue, and you'll know it's blue. I hope that helps!

Is the 8500k a blue purple or just blue?

The 8500K is blue, but there are time where you will see a bit of purple, but it's not where the whole color of the light has a purple hue.

I have the 8500K on mine, and sometimes it looks purplish, but most of the time, mine looks really blue. Maybe because mine is starting to dim a tiny bit since it has been used for so long

For some reason, mine look white when the rings are the only lights on. However, when I switched on my Xenon, the rings are yellow again. I am not talking about the outside ring which I already know is dimmer. I am talking about the inside rings. Has anyone noticed this or is it just me? Does mine have problem?

It's a BMW design Ronsil. When the Xenon lights turn on, the angel eyes light output is only 1/2 of what it would be if your xenon lights are off. Nothing wrong with the bulb itself. The new 3-series coupes are like that as well--just a design in the headlight from BMW :biggrin:

That sucks but at least I know its not the bulb's problem. I thought I've seen white rings on some e90X even with Xenon on. Thanks for your input James.

Yeah, the current E90 has a different headlight design than that of the E92/E93. Since the E92, the headlight design has been different, but I'm pretty sure someone's going to find a solution to keeping the lighting power at full capacity :biggrin:

Do I need to put in "2" for quantity on the website if I want a pair or is 1 for quantity mean 1 pair?

Ready to order, just want to make sure I order the right stuff.

Thanks:w00t:
