    IMO 4300-6000K will keep you clear of hassle for having too blue lights.

    55W are brighter than the 35W and look good.

    I would pay a little more and get mini or micro ballasts, the cheap sets can be crap and give me bother.

    What npd said.

    55W though is best for high beams - they're bright as hell! If you're going for 55W then you should opt for a HID relay because the power consumption.

    Have a look here:

    35w H7R's in standard lights and nothing higher than 6000k so they are not 'too' blue.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    I was a bit concerned with 6000k hid's with an upcoming MOT but was told any higher on the kelvin scale and I would fail. 35w over 55w for your main beam and you can keep them in no matter Oh, and dont buy too cheap!

    would go for 55w if you are using them in projector lamps, if not maybe 35watt, ans 4000-5000 if u want white, but 6000k if u want a tint of blue with no hassel lol
