Hello again guys and thanks for the quick replies.
I've looked at the LED 'bulbs' again and think you're right -they'll look white, but won't be all that bright. I'm going to get a HID kit for sure, but now wondered what peoples thoughts are on either 4300K or 6000K -I know the higher the temperature the whiter/blue the light, but also the less bright they become. Really I want a compromise, so thinking 6000K (but don't wanna get pulled neither)!
4300K gives the best llumination at where you're looking to go (i.e., the road ahead). 6000k colour temperature gives a slightly purplish tint when one is looking at the headlamp, and less illumination on the road ahead than the 4300K.
I personally prefer 4300K.
