35w 6k will be a purplish blue. 55w will be bluish white. U can go to ddmtuning.com and look at the different bulb temperatures. I got the 5k 55w for my headlights still waiting to put them n. I think u was the one i was talking to bout my headlights.

Thanks. A good rule of thumb is that with HIDs 35w bulbs will be close to the temp they advertise, while a 55w bulb will be closer to the temp right under them due to increased power. A 8k 55w will be bluewhite like a 6k 35w, and a 55w 6k will be really white like a 4.5k 35w.

The tint may make them yellower though. I'm thinking 6k to make them look 5k. As btw, yes they use the same kit, kinda. For stock fogs it'll be a single beam kit for 800,880,etc...

They'll be white, those will definitely shine through.

Well, that's what I'm doing with my fogs, but they're pretty much blacked out completely. Yours should be good with 5000k 35w.

Yeah, I mean, your fogs match the tint on your headlights, so I would just match with the 5000k
