    hi, just wondering if anyone has used a higher rated bullb in their a3/s3 and if they had a pic of it? i want my xenons to look slightly more blue so i am thinking of going for maybe 6000k or 8000k but on a golf the 8000k are a little too blue... just curious...

    Standard Xenon bulbs are around 4.5K, I have 8K Xenons on my Passat, and they are very bright and blue to boot, I'd go for 6K as a comprimise.

    i wouldnt bother myself.

    as the colour range goes up, the lumens come down.


    so you get a bluer light, but less light.

    ie this...
