So got these for $190 on Ebay, works perfect! Plug and play; although wish they were HIDS. Sorry for the lack of pics, I have school starting, moving and work still. I'll hopefully get a lot more pics soon!

I fail to understand why anyone wants blue for headlights. It's so useless, especially in poor weather. 4,300k is going to be the brightest and works best in poor weather.

I have 6000k's, and I can see forever.
4300k-6000k's for headlights
3000k for fogs ( yellow ) - best in rain/fog

I love the color of a true 4,300k bulb. I'm using Philips 85122+ D2S bulbs in my EvoX-R retrofit. It just has a tinge of yellow, which is perfect for Pacific NW weather.

Cutoff? And yes these are pretty nice. I tried taking a pic with the lows on but I would have to try at a earlier time of the day.
Cutoff is basically the line that designates where your beam pattern stops due to the cutoff shield. The sharper a cutoff and the more uniform a cutoff step (a naturally occurring deviation in a projector beam's cutoff line), the better.

Best way to see it is to park in front of a wall at dusk or dark, maybe 20-25 feet away.
