I think they are blue enough for me (while keepin the law enforcment off my tail), I can pull up next to anyone at night and you can't even see there headlights on the road in front of them because of mine
But your gonna love um if you don't already..
Nope not that blue when you compare them to these shot you showed me:
Then again not all of your pics were that blue. I think there perfect shade, dont get me wrong, there just not blue blue like that. I did think they would be slightly bluer, but I was not expecting them to be as blue as that shot either. Regardless though, like I said the color is perfect. No one has flashed me yet. Now I just need some high quality brights like HIR or another HIDs kit now that I know what I am doing!
Thanks again for those pics. Like I said you helped me decide for sure 8000K was a good choice!

Thanks lol, wow what a difference from any set of bulbs I ever owned. Wow! I mean I can see the reflection off street lights a mile away. I can SEE! I mean seriously its amazing, and not just because I went from some cheapo bulbs to the HIDs. Rather just the HIDs in general. I used Xenon "HIDs" before and they seemed great, but now they seem average at best! These are so amazing, I love night driving now!
Dont ask me why the purple is in there, I guess the iphone camera just doesnt like that much light lol.
It took me and my buddy like 3 hours to install them! Sad I know. We got the grill off in no time, well he did. The headlight housing took us maybe 30 min or more because of the clip nearest the quarter panel. It was impossible to get a grip on or wedge something under it to lift it up! Then we tried to wire the battery relay harness to the battery...fail. The ring terminals would not fit over the posts! We noticed there was a cable running from the battery directly to the fuse box, and mounted it on there. I am worried about doing this though as I have heard some horror stories about using the fuse boxes as a power source for car stereo amps, and was unsure how much power these would be drawing. Then we pulled out a screw on the quarter panel already used for a ground for factory wiring to ground out the HIDs. Then I was going to mount the ballast only to find that the extra zip ties I bought earlier on the day were to wide(VVME only shipped me 3)! So that took about another 20 mins. Menard's is right next door to where I live but with getting in and out of the store, took a little bit. Then it was time to mount the ballasts! So we mounted under the beam running just above the headlights, the one where the bar for the battery cover mounts to. So we get this done and now we are trying to figure out how to wire everything. I pretty much got mine right away, but he did not so that took a little bit as I was trying to just let him do his. Well we had to team up. Then we had everything hooked up right, but yet the HIDs wouldnt come on, only the parking lamps and corner lights. It took us another twenty or so before he realized he didnt have the second harness plugged in to the bottom of the housing where the parking lamp is. Plugged that in and it became daylight lol! So then we just had to get the housings and everything put back together. Sadly we couldnt tuck the harnesses and wiring in to be able to fit the rubber caps back on, but atleast we got them installed and working. I am going to go through tomorrow and do a little clean up, like zip tieing the battery harness to that beam, and maybe checking in to other locations for the ballasts. I will grab more pics tomorrow when it is daylight outside so you guys can give me feedback to see if I can improve anything as I have a feeling I can!
