should be 9006. theres a link to sylvania's site on ddm that you can find your vehicle and appropriate bulb size.

i've been using the 6000k with the full sized balast for the last couple of months and i have had no complaints so far.


i installed 5000k on my moms car before it died and it was bright as hell.

Colors vary between companies. The chart posted above is nowhere near the DDM Tuning colors and should NOT be used as a reference. Here are some real life shots I took. I tried to replicate the right color as well as I could.

DDM tuning describes the color of their HIDs very well on their drop-down list for purchasing replacement bulbs.
