Xenon headlights

Being a Lighting Engineer I really should know the answer to this, but I don't, very embarrassing.

Does anyone know what the colour temperature of the factory fitted D2R Xenon headlights on the Renault Laguna II? Two types are available from a third part source 8000K or 6000K. Iíd guess 6000k, but I want to be certain and I donít want to pay main steeler prices

Hi there,

The factory colour temperature is 4300K with the philips oem bulbs. Ive put 6000K bulbs in mine (cheaper than the philips oems for pair ) and the colour is had a tint of blue. 8000K will be more blue than the 6000k..

The 4300k bulbs produce the whiteist most usuable light, so Ive read.

If you go to www.hids4u.co.uk you can get a philips oem D2R bulb for £70 I think..... I got a pair of 6000K bulbs from the same place for £60. I figured I'd get both changed at the same time.
