HID Lights Question?

If i got these Apexcone Raptor HID Kit (35w or 55w): HID Kits, DEPO Lights, BMW Bumpers & Lighting - DDM Tuning
9700 55W and 8000k would that be too bright? The law is if they put a white sheet of paper up to the lights and it turns blue then you get a ticket. Would they turn blue? Also how hard would it be to install?

I have 8000K just look in my vehicle showoff I have not once been flashed, or been bothered by the police. the plug and play kits are very easy to install. I recommend getting the 35w though no need for 55w.

im prolly going to get the same, from the same site, 8000k 55W, and the reason im getting them is because they have a blue color, but not real deep blue. If you want something not blue then youd have to bump down to 6000k.

If you get 55w there not gonna look blue, it will be white.

So because the wattage is higher the light is whiter, in order to get the blue look i would have to go with 8000k 35W or stay 55W but bump up to 10000k?

I don't think the watts matter from what i hear. Maybe this will help.

well the wattage makes it brighter but i thought both 35W and 55W were the same color as long as the temp is the same.... i could be wrong... but i want the 8000k blue/white look

that's what i want but i don't want to be told to take them off once i get them on or get a ticket. So i think i'm going to go with the 6000k.
