Does anyone have any pictures of Flowlighting HIDs showing 3000k vs 6000k? I know that 3k is going to be a lot yellower, just want to see the difference side by side.

idk how accurate flowlighting's HID's are but here is a museum display that shows the differences

User posted image

3000k is the bottom.

6000k is 2nd from the top.

(yes I know the labels are a bit off, its the angle that the picture was taken)

I bet a cheap set of projector housings (blazers) with a 8xx HID kit would be best

stock blazers

with 65 watt bulb mod

I can get you HID bulb pictures in the same projectors if you want

Sure. I'm thinking about putting my HIDs in my fog lights and getting a lower K value HID. I can't go another winter with these blue headlights. Probably just putting some 80 watt Silverstars in my lows. What do you mean by 8xx HID kit?

EDIT

That bottom pic...how do those fogs have that nice cutoff? I want mine like that.

3000k HID (10-12 feet away)


my pictures were more like 25-30 feet away from the brick wall.

here is an ebay auction for them
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DIAMOND-BLUE-PRO...34207QQihZ013QQitemZ230044930208

what I mean by 8xx kit is you can get hid kits in 881 880 894 etc. they all mount the same, all have the same focal point. what changes is the orientation that the bulb connector is.

Okay, so in order to get the above picture I would need that item in the eBay link, and a HID bulb size 8xx? Can I use the Flowlighting kit?

you would need the projectors in the link and a kit. Looks like oz doesn't have 8xx style bulbs so you would have to look elsewhere. you could always go the cheaper route and just do halogen bulbs in there.

Well, my plan was to keep using my HID kit but to just stick them into the fogs instead of my low beams. I guess I could just purchase those projectors and stick the HIDs in my high beam spot and go back to halogen 9006s in my lows. I didn't see at first that the eBay link came with bulbs. Any idea how many watts those are? I'm guessing 55. If so, I'd like to switch out for 80. I assume that's pretty straight forward, just buy some 8xx 80 watt bulbs and swap.

they are fog lights... stock is 37.5 watts. good luck finding anything other than 37 watt 8xx light bulbs. I've been looking for a while now. With a little custom work you can fit H9 65 watt bulbs in there

Hmm, alright. Well then, I guess the only thing that's left is to sell the HIDs and pick up some nice PIAA bulbs and those projector fogs. Thanks for all the help.

Oh, do you have that set of projector fogs? It's just become clear to me that that set looks kinda, well, cheap.

you mean the ones I gave you the ebay link for? yes I have them. I took the pictures that I posted above (except the 3000K HID one and the color range chart)

yes they are cheap in price, but they are quality lights.

I just bought some Blazers from a guy off of HiDPlanet. Going to be purchasing some 8xx 3500k bulbs until I can afford a cheapo e-bay HID kit for the fogs. They have already been taken apart and modded he said.

Where the hell did you get Flowlighting 3k HIDs? They only show 4000k on the site. Oh, and they need to be 800s or 880s.

Wow, $189 dollars on sale. That's cheap as hell, but who cares. Thanks for the link.

Anyone know the difference between 880 and 881?

the difference between 8xx bulbs is the connector angle off the base. some go straight out, some down, some up, some to the side etc.

Will HIDs melt a composite coversion headlight?

does a 35 watt bulb run hotter than a 55 watt bulb? you should be able to answer that. I guess it depends what the HL is made off. I doubt it though.

the ebay link that I posted above, yes the blue ion coated lenses makes output more yellow then clear. but they are no where near what I would consider yellow.

No, clear lens. The HIDs aren't going in my headlights...they're going in my fogs which are made out of glass.

Just got the set of Pilot HIDs in. VERY impressive packaging. It's a hard cardboard box, it's kind of hard to explain but it's real nice. They don't look very yellow, real white though. Maybe they'll look different in the projectors.

put your camera in manual mode and take the picture with the same settings. Those 2 pictures have different exposures and fstops.
