I installed 8000k hid today. And I honostly don't see any difference between them. I mean I know it's supposed to have more blue but when I look at it I just don't see a difference. I even still got 6000k in my foglights and they look the same

Thought the same one mine. Had my friend take my car down the road ( he has a cobra so I trust him lol ). And it's more of a blue tint for others to see.
