You can get HID's in yellow, blue, purple, white, and different shades in between. It all depends on what heat range you want. The OP has 6000k heat range which is very close to pure white, and just slightly on the blue side. I have 5000k's waiting to go in, which are pretty much pure white. Some guys go with 4300k or lower and that is a little more yellow, or some go with 8000k's and they are more blue, and the higher you go, the more purple it will look.

I will take tons of both indoor and outdoor in similar lighting conditions. And they will be taken on the same camera settings.

I know, I know, but he has the 6Kk which is the intense bright blue, almost white. The yellow I was referring to is the color all the stock fbodies sorry headlights look like.

I've seen some of your pictures before. You seem to know your way around a camera pretty well so I'm sure they'll be pretty accurate.

It's called color temperature. Heat range is for spark plugs.

A set of Sylvania Silverstar halogens don't look yellow at all, and it's only a few dollars more than a regular halogen. They plug right in. You certainly don't have to go HID if all you want is to get rid of the yellow.

You knew what I was getting at. Some companies like the one I got mine from do in fact refer to it as heat range.

He is right. It can be color temp or heat range, cause its all by degrees.

True, some companies do call it that.

However, those companies are mislabeling their products. There is no range involved with a color temperature. A given bulb has a given color temperature, which is the temperature in degrees Kelvin (hence the K) of the surface of an object called a "black body" at which said body will be the color in question.

Not that it's really important, but by now you guys probably know how much of a stickler I am for accuracy with stuff like this.
