I think he might mean the older TL HID's, the Gen right before the current one that's blueish tint to it, because they're a little older the HID's rise in temp color as they get older, but I have 6000k and u can see it in my cardomaine, if u want a PURE white get 5000k and 6000k is white with a hint of blue to it on the ground when warmed up.

prev gen TL uses D2R bulbs (reflector-based)... and i m not sure why u want that blue bulb.... but if u want them for looks, get the 6000K xtec kit....

yes indeed, HID bulbs tends to colorshift after ~200 hours or so, and max lifespan at 2000hours ...

mine are blue, almost too blue. mine are 6000K. if you are seeing me driving down the road you see blue, almost purple. looking on the street there is defenitely white.

if i had to do it again, i would have chosen the 5000K bulbs instead.
