8K is too blue (IMO), and you lose light output. 6K at most, 4300K is optimal.

I would go for the 6k. You will lose too much light if you go to 8k.

Personally, I'm not a fan of going above 4300k since it gets a bit ricey (at least over here), but I think if you do change it you really shouldn't go for more than 6000k since it really does become "rice" and you loose quite a bit of output too.

i am leaning more towards 6000k just cuz 4300k has too much yellow for me, and since I have the angel eye kit now which is 6000k i want my headlight bulbs to match as well...

the higher k u get, the lower visibility u will get...unless u get HIDs
but get 6000k, they have a small hint of blue anyways but barely enough to notice.

8k is just a little too blue for me. Everytime I see blue bulbs like that coming towards me, I immediately feel like its a poser with blue glass halogens.
