All I know about the bulbs is that they are rated in thousands of some unit, K (is that Kelvin as in temperature?). Anyway,
1-is it true that the higher the K value the more blue (or purplish blue) the light becomes? - and, of course, the less functional too.
2-Is the purplish-blue more functional than the most blueish ones, al BMW and Audi?
3-What's the best compromise?
4-Are the ML bulbs easy to replace?

1. yes, bigger the number more purple the bulb.
2. no, purple is less functional.
3. something in the 4300 k range is optimal.
4. very easy.
