    Check the power feed to the ballast first because if you don't have enough power the colour can go a bit

    I bought mine from Trups of EM Tuning, they're either 4300 or 5000k I can't remember, but I'm very impressed for the price compared to my old 6000k.

    I've got 5000k in mine, got them from eBay. £35 delivered with slimline ballasts. Never had a problem with them...
