You may notice an increase going from a factory 4300k bulb to a *high quality* 5000k or 6000k, but that is due to the quality of the bulb, not the increase in Kelvin. Any higher than 6000k and you will lose visibility, guaranteed. You'll also be inviting police to pull you over for yet another reason.
Yes, another thing to note is many lowering packages on these cars lower more in the rear than the front, which would cause the headlights to be angled up more. I doubt if a single person thought to re-align the headlights to correct for this.
Agreed. I hate when some jacka55 has those eye blinding purple or bluish-purple bulbs.
Even 6000 has a slight blue tint. They're generally not pure white.
4000 yellow looks old
5000 most modern OEM, white
6000 white w/slight bluish tint, look nice
8000 blue - aggrivating to others and look rice
9000+ purple - even worse than 8000 on all counts.
