the highest Kelvin rating I recommend is 6000K, unless your car is all show, and no go.....

I just put in 8000K HIDs in my 2000 concorde about 2 weeks ago. Got them from xenondepot, plug and play, although it took me like 4 hours because changing the lights on the Corde's friggin sux.
AND i live in an area in South NJ where most cops are A-holes and have not had any problems with them, even while stopped at a light next to and accross from them.

If they were 6000K there would be more light but its still more than what I got from the halogen silverstars. Visibility is very good, I get no eye strain, and there is no glare to oncoming drivers.
Prob the best mod i've done so far. I LOVE THEM!

my comp froze right after i posted the pics so i'm posting again lol

But i have a couple more pics of the 8000K(crystal blue) if you or any wants to see them in both day and night time.

Any higher temperature than this and it will probably defeat the purpose of better lighting. The light itself on these looks blue like in the pics but on the road itself everything looks white with a blue hue so visibility is still good. They dont turn everything you see on the road into blue scale color. I'll try getting road pics tomorrow lol. I'm too lazy and its too cold to go outside right now.

I am getting glare from my screen.

The CRI has to be absolute crap. The human eye may shift its peak sensitivity from ~555 nanometers to 505 nM (green to still green) for night vision but that blue/purple stuff is just super poser material.

HID lights are for the AARP crowd.

spend the money and go with a real HID retro fit you get great light output no glare and they look blue or purple depending on which angle you look at it from.

OH NO, THE GLARE, ITS SOOO BAD






and the bottom pic is from about 50 ft. away, so the light, as you can see doesnt spread up or shoot all over the place.
NOW, find a picture of a NEON with HID's and all you get is an insane pattern of unaimed light and streaks shooting towards the sky. The same thing happened with my 1st gen trep.
But on my 2nd Corde, as you can see, the light is pretty even.
