color and brightness

the higher the number...the more blue/purple you get

the higher the number...the less light output you get

Yes. My brother has the 4200k Philips H.I.D. kit in his SupraTT and compared to the 6000K in my Celica his are by far brighter! Much much brighter! His are pure pure white(no yellow whatsoever) while mine are purple. If I had to go back and do it all over again I'd buy the 4200k Philips H.I.D. kit- they light up the road like no other :)

H7 is the bulb type for the low beams. (for regular driving)
9005 is the bulb type for the high beams (for when you drive in a really dark forest or somethin)

most people who buy one HID kit buy the H7 one for regular night time driving.

thanks for the info ....now i just visited another site and they said that hids fog up the interior of the cars headlights from the gas in the hids,did anyone have that problem?because if interior of the light gets clouded up from the hid chemicals then that would be such a pain to have to clean the interior of the headlight.if that happens wouldnt the light turn yellowish from all that gas that the hid produces in the headlight.then if that happens i will have to end up buying a new pair of headlights.....please let me know if you guys ever had your headlights getting clouded up or turning yellowish from your hids.if so i might change my mind because i dont want to end up using more of my money on buying a new pair of headlights.

nope that wont happen.
it probally happened to them because they altured their headlight or didn't close it up right when they put it back in their headlights.
it wont produce hotter temps than normal lights for you headlights.
those guys dont know what their talking about.

yes, but it will not be much brighter than stock.
it will shoot out a lot of color but not much white light.
i say if you plan on getting 8000k hid's you might as well get 20 dollar coated bulbs.

they are all not legal but you would more likely get pulled over for a 8000k all color hid kit than a 5000k or 4100k kit.
you could always tell them it came stock like this and the 03's do have hid's so i wouldn't worry too much.
phillips has 4100k 5000k and 6000k hid kits
