Bentley, Range Rover, What HID Kv do they use?

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question...

Looking at all these top of the range cars all seem to have a very white, with a tinge of blue light to them...

Are they all using 6000k from factory? or do they even go as far as 8000k?

All the best,

Josh

Everyone is using 4300K. Blue or not, it is the optic on the housing and not the bulb.

+1 on 4300K

Also what makes a set of xenons look better than another is usually the projector setup. With the research I've done for the retrofit I'll be doing on my E30, the best ones out there are on the S2000 with Acuras coming in close second.

Yeah the Acura housings have the best cutoff I've seen.
