12K is not more intense than 6000, if anything less visible light. Don't get caught up in the hype stay below 6K, if you want to see where you're going that is.

Stick with 4,300k. Anything above 6,000k will be dimmer than your halogens. Also, it's recommended to retrofit a set of stock headlights instead with projectors. Those aftermarket projector headlights aren't all that great. The Mini H1 projectors are better, but I like my EvoX-Rs with 4,300k Philips 85122 bulbs.

What they said.

The number is just the temp of the color bulb. I have 6k and they are nice and bright but they are towards the light blue side.

ive had the 12k before, the light output sucks. its more of a purple/blacklight color. made all the road signs and lane stripes glow. if you want to see 4-6k is a good temp to stick with
