Technically Kelvin ratings has nothing to do with the brightness of the light. It is the color temp that "K"represents. Your brightness is actually measured in lumen. So in the real world if you were looking for the absolute brightest and MOST usable light then it will be from 4500-5000k. With 6k being the absolute highest I would recommend. Not to bash on you or anything but I just thought you should know.

Here is a link from a forum for you guys to check out.

If you already have an exhausting hid kit in your car then just change the bulbs. But if you don't have an existing kit then you would have to do the whole set up

Naa not at all. Try ddmtuning if you just looking for bulbs. Heck even if looking for a whole kit. Remember to get a bi-Xeon kit though bcuz if u don't you won't have a high beam.
