did you end up getting the 8000K lights? What do you think of them? I was thinking about getting the 6 or 8, which one do you prefer? Where are you ordering them from? Do you think that they will make the hoens xeonmatch look out of place like the standard fogs due to the factory HIDs?

Thanks!
EDIT: Actually I see on infinitifx.org that you did get those as well as 10,000k. Do the 10,000k fit the murano as well? And do you think they will make the hoen xeonmatch look out of place?

I really like the HID lights on my new Murano. I've just got the stock ones. But I've noticed that becuase they are so much brigher than a normal light, my eyes have to adjust when I look up beyond the range of the lights.

Its not a problem in town, but I was driving in the country the other night and had to wait a second before I could see some of the features off the road.

Does anybody else notice this, or am I going night blind?

That'd be my only hesitation about boosting my HID's to 6,8 or even 10k. Things on the road would look fine, but the contrast between the road and the surroundings I think would be too great.

hey snow........

im hesitant to comment anymore about this.....

here goes anyway........

the xenonmatch ONLY jive with the 4300K (oem) hid's.... anything else makes em look yellow (again)

i now have the PIAA diamondd spark (9006) foglights, and they look almost green-bluish in comparo to my hid's.....

i am content, however

and yes... the color temp does not effect ftiment...

basically, you just need a "D2S" bulb (not the D2R!)

esemes...

I saw the 10K pics at the fx web site. How much less can you actually see with the bulbs?

Esemes,
Dont hesitate. I value your opinion and obviously your input is desired elsewhere seeing as how you are a moderator on infinitifx. Thanks for the input...thats what I'm going with, do you think that source still has some? How long did it take to get them in? Can you PM me with a source to get the 7500K fogs as well?

Thanks!

OOOHHHH!

So when you guys are talking K, you're not talking wattage, you're talking color temperature. Got it. That's good to know. I was wondering why the hell you would want to put a pair of 10,000 watt lights on your vehicle (in brightness). It'd be handy if you wanted to vaporize any obstructions!

When I worked in television, we had to white balance our cameras to match different color temperatures. 6500-8000k was considered the norm for daylight. Because of the refraction of the atmosphere, this was technically a little blue. 8000k was more for cloudy days.

I thought I'd post my response in the event that anybody else made the same mistake as I did in understanding the meaning of 10k.
