    I'm hoping the 6k isn't too blue.

    55w 5k was a perfect match for me.

    4300K or 5000K is best, 6000K will have a slight blue hue and look even blue-er next to the 4300K stockers.

    Hopefully it doesn't look too blue to the point where it will look stupid

    I guess you'll find out. HID bulbs are cheap enough if you decide to go with a 5000K.

    Re: HID fogs

    just did my top and bottom 2 weeks ago....but i bought the 10k... not bright enough...going to buy the 5k this week...thanks to the previous owner there are no splash sheilds under the car ...so it was really just 4 bolts and about 5 or 6 of the plastic push pins....ballast are neatly tucked away behind the bumper support.....good luck with yours

    Is there room if you go from up under the bumper as opposed to taking the tire and fender liner out?

    Yes. No need to pull the wheel

    Blew the tire off my daily driver last night changed my plans.
    I went through the wheel well so I didn't have to get under the car to get to the fogs. Either way you are popping a bunch of those annyoing clips.

    Plus I got a chance to paint the hubs of the rotors while the wheel was off.

    I went with 5,000k and 55W. 55w washout the color a little. I would have went 4,500k for 35w if I was trying to match the OEM headlights.

    My tire blew out on my daily too last night haha, I hate gm push clips but I don't have an impact gun at my house so I'll probably end up going up through the bumper and taking the splash shield off the bottom.

    Anybody have the link to a D3 or matching HID setup for the fog lights? I suck at the internet.
