HID lamp change

Has anyone changed the color (temperature) of their lamps?

I like 6000K personally.

That slight blue color seems to stimulate reflectors very well.

"04 Base Impala went 354K on second trans, orig motor
Wrecked 02/14

"09 LT 3.5 currently 145K

I personally went with LEDs. But if you do switch yours out, I hear morimotos are the way to go.

I already have factory HID, so no conversion.


I did convert my Goldwing years ago and loved the color as stated above though.

I have in the Osram Cool Blue Boost. They say they're "up to 7000k" but they're probably closer to 5500k-6500k and i love these bulbs. Very powerful and not too overbearing for oncoming drivers, but i will say that like most cooler temp bulbs, they don't do very well on wet, rainy days.
