6000K bulbs will give out a bit more blue in the light, so unless you buy a pair, steer clear as you will have two different colour light beams. (But then it does say that in the add on re-reading it )

I've got 6000K bulbs in mine, and the colour difference is quite noticable over standard TBH.

And as Prag rightly said, normal bulbs wont fit unless you change the headlights. But then Im not sure if the wiring will be adapting too ?
You can buy two of these for less than half a new one from the stealer- no contest! But do you need this now or is it speculative, a they do tend to last an awful long time and may well outlive the car's mechanics!
