I have the 6000K D1S Philips Ultinon on my car. I'm planning to switch back to stock color because they look a little to purple on my blue car. I think 6000K is perfect on AW or any of the dark hues.

KKSigua is running the 6700k setup and they should be broken in by now.

Be sure to break them in first as the color will shift. Two week of daily commuting should do it. I'd drive with the lights on during the day to help speed up the process. This applies for all OE capsule bulbs

Thanks Mike, btw, thank you for the quick response on getting me those bulbs quickly! Anyone looking for bulbs I highly recommend F1!

They will become a little more blue/purple/white overtime as it reaches it's optimal color temperature. This goes for all OE capsules (Philips, GE, Osram) as the patented materials inside need to fuse.

No my shop did. To install you need to remove front wheels and remove the wheel well plastic trim. You should then be able to see the bulbs.
