I agree with Kris and exakel. Might look more cool, but you give up one of HID's advantages: more light.

Bluer light cause eye fatique during long drive...

4500K (OEM) and 6000K is the best spectrum as it is closest to daylight....

The bluish tint that you see in bmw and audi's xenon is not high K temperature bulb, it is the headlight projector lenses that plays with the beam optics of the 4500K bulbs.

If you are happy with your 10,000K bulb. I am happy for you
But i wont do it myself, just like ekaxel, eric L and Kris.

i do agree with everyone else and that there is less light output i knew this before i got the 10k but my night driving is almost next to none.. i did this only for cosmetics like i said in my original post.. this was just to show others who wanted to see how they looked if they wanted to upgrade as well.. i do have my stock bulbs if i did need to have them.. but i am happy.. thanks for everyone else explaining the goods and bads to all the other people.. everyone have a safe weekend
