please write why you picked it.. first, I will put why I am considering about 3000K.. It's bright.. seriously you ever seen a bike/car with a yellow light? you can't miss it. and I want the car to see me well.. why 5000K? 3000K is illegal to have in on your main light..

HID's are not about appearence. They are suppsoed to help you see better. So i say go with 5000k. My buddy has 3000k on his Duc and it looks like crap, and puts out like ZERO light.

I like virtually true white over yellow. All my cars in the past have had european yellow bulbs and I'm just tired of any sort of yellow.

I have 6000K for high and low beam. Turns night into day and makes driving easier on your eyes...less strain.

I have 8000k in both high and low beams. But I like the color of them.. a little bit lower temp would give you "more" light

If this is for your R6, then I say go w/ the 5k-6k.

I'm runing 6k's on my Gixxer 1k and it's more tahn enough.

I think the 3k's will look too gawdy!

You really want something in the 4-5k range. That will give you the purest white light. Anything in the 6k range will give you that purple tint and anything higher then that will look blue, but would result in a reduction in the area lit. Anything below 4k and you're getting a yellowish light, which is not very helpful either.
