12k is purple a friend of mine use to have them in his civic, but he got rid of them after driving home in the fog one night and he couldn't see shit. He had to turn off his headlights and drive home.

i believe 4300k is optimal. the higher you go, the more the light will scatter. itll look pretty but defeat the purpose of having lights. i wouldnt go any higher than 6000k.

from what ive read, the reason certain cars look blue is cause of the lens, not the bulb.

Definately true, the colours we see in the factory HID's out there are not due to the bulb color, as most are 4300K, it is due to the edge off the cutoff shield within the projector. Definately 12000K will give bad light output, it may look cool though head on. I've got 8000K in the factory headlights. Way better than before, but I think I wanna still change to something lower like 4300-6000K.
