    Factory Zenon bulbs will be 4300k so going to 6000k will make them dimmer

    As the light turns from white to blue and then onto purple with 12000k it also gets dimmer

    i know the score about higher k gets less light on the road,but i thought 6000k was the limit without loseing light..so you are saying that i will have less light on the road with them than the stock bulbs..

    4300k bulbs are brighter the 6000k and the difference is quite noticeable.
