    PM Protephile, he's doing a group buy of HID's from Techone right now. They're a breeze to install.

    4500K = Great light output (3400 lumens), White, best performance
    5000K = Great light output (3200 lumens), Pure white, very good looks
    6000K = Good light output (3000 lumens) , white with blue hue, best looks
    8 000K = Good light output (2800 lumens) , light blue output, best looks

    Is it fine if i install the 6000K in my car ? suggestions ?

    Does anyone know what Bulb Sizes does the 2003 MAzdaspeed protege need ?

    I thought techone fell through and he was working with a different supplier now.. The one I saw didn't offer a bixenon kit, but rather an HID low with Halogen high beam kit... which personally I would NEVER spend money on.

    personally I would go with 5K-6K. I have a 6K kit, and it is MORE than blue enough for me, I'm not going for a ton of flash, and as you see, the lower the color temp you choose, the more actual light output you get.

    I'm in the same boat. I can't decide between 6k & 8k. There are only a few people with HIDS installed on their car and I don't see them enough to actually tell whether or not I like them. When looking at pictures online, none of them are ever the true color b/c HIDS are better to see in person.

    8K is too blue for me.. no added functionality, and gets cops attention much quicker. 6K looks like it could be factory HIDs, 8K, pretty much not.

    thats just how I feel about it though, I'm sure others would disagree, anyone who's seen my car will tell you I'm pretty boring! lol

    HID 6K has worked perfect for me, I wouldn't go any higher.

    In order to install HID's, I would need to purchase an h4 bi-xenon kit correct?
