I'm very interested in this kit but I'm not sure about colour temp. I want white without any blue hue in it. Would that be 10k???

Its for the wires running to and from the HIDS. Originally one had to CUT the housing to fit the wires but looks like Alex has taken it ONE step further to insure approp. fitment and reduce any chances leakage but manufacturing his own grommet! Must have!!!

ok, I think I know what is it. To avoid the water leak inside the headlight.

So 8000k with the cap.

What color temperatures do you have specifically? I know you said anywhere from 3,000K-20,000K but that leaves it up in the air a bit.

Yes it is. I have been suggesting this since the first angel eye HID kit came out. Glad to see someone has finally taken the initiative. The only thing different I would have done is grind that rib off instead of just snapping it off and then sealing the grommet down. Can you tell I am a bit OCD about things on my car? lol

BTW, depending on Alex's reply about bulb temperatures I will be on board for this GB as well.

I think I am sticking with stock d1s - or possibly 6,000K - and not sure on the AE yet. I don't want to go 8,000K as I think that would be too blue for me.

That's just ruff pictures, it's going to be much more smoother for our OCD customers, hehe

Your right, I should have listed every single one rather then 3k-20k.

I have 3000K, 4300K, 5000K, 6000K, 7000K, 8000K, 10,000K, 12,000K, and 20,000K.

Maybe because the optics on the projectors already have a bit of a blue tint to them. Plus the lower the K the more the light output which is what you would want with your headlights... lol
