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.
