Arrow Official Bi-Xenon Headlights using 14000K,15000K, 30000K Bulbs ? Pink or Purple Look

I have Bi-Xenons on my c230 with currently 6000K bulbs and the color is white. Im looking to get a pink or purple color. I think this is the best look, and its different from other peoples setups and its futuristic. I like to be unique. Can our current setup in the housing take these high temperatures for these bulbs ? I do know the lumens do decrease. But at this site called hidlook all the lumens remain the same, just higher temperatures and colors. I would like to get this look. Do anyone know any good brands where I can change the current white setup to a pink or purple look ? I would also like to do this to the fogs without converting to Xenon. Any good halogen bulbs that can make fogs pink or purple ?


Heres what I am talking about

Ask them what the heat output is. If it is more than the stock ones, be ready to buy new housings someday. I doubt there is a significant difference in temperature of the bulb, unless it is less efficient at those other colors. But, ask the supplier what the heat output is relative to the white ones (they must sell the white ones too). Jim

Well they use the same Wattage as the stock 35W. Its just the color temperature is higher. Im buying these bulbs. Im getting the 30000K ones. The lumens is twice as better than standard halogens.

The blue and purple H7 "Ghetto" bulbs also known as "La Luz Mexicanos" burn extremely hot and will melt the cheap plastic sockets that MB has provided us with. As far as HID capsules, it would be best to contact the head lamp manufacturer and inquire. As a general rule though the higher the number and darker the capsule the cooler they burn.
