    Hi all,

    I'm looking to put xenon hids on my car, but have a few questions...

    1. Which bulb size? H1 or H7?

    2. Which colour... ie 4500k, 5000k, 6000k. (I'm looking for pure white as any sort of blue don't really look good on my car).

    3. Will it be easy to fit them on my car?

    4. Ive got projectors, will the be legal?

    5. Will they interfere with my CCFL's?

    Thanks, your answers are most appreciated!

    Got the xenons and fitted them, piece of cake!

    I got the 6000k, it's actually pure white! And it looks great.

    Hey, yep I got 6000k's in my 318is, they really are pure pure white. There's a very very slight tinge of blue you can sometimes see but they're the closest to pure white you'll get I think and 6000k gives out the most lumens too
