How does one get blinded by 10k? They are really blue but dimmer due to the visual light spectrum.

I'd get 55w 6ks...the brighter wattage will wash the color temp but still shine through the tint.

Would they match if they are both 6k? And because they are tinted would it be almost pure white?

Let us know and post pics. Don't bother with the brackets you can use 3M tape and don't bother with the hi/low beam bulbs. Someone said they just have a little thing that moves the bulb up higher

When you turn on the high beams it moves the bulb up further so that the lights reach farther distances. I'm going to get the hi/low beam.

I'm going to stick with DDM tuning because they are pretty cheap and have a lifetime warranty. But thanks for the suggestion.
