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 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.
