Did you see that in your Owners Manual?

It should say H7, 55W

Thanks Loren, your always the 1st to respond. I don't have an owners manual, the previous owner misplaced it. Do you know anything about a 30000k bulb going in these headlights?

Just watch the heat level - the housing and front cover are just plastic.

It is the wattage that is more important than the k value (kelvin)

30,000k are EXTREMELY voilet in colour.

I have had 6000k 50WATT HIDS in mine for a while and they are fine considering the standard bulbs are 55WATT.

Most HID kits were typically 35WATTS but are becoming more commonly 50WATTS now.

The 6,000k refers to the light spectrum output. The 50WATTS refers to the power and current that the bulb uses and therefore the heat.

the lower the value of K the more yellow it is. The higher beyond 8,000K it is then the less actual light output there is and the colour changes through blue to violet going higher in K's.

6,000K is a good compromise because it is very WHITE and a high output of light.

I did a bit of research before fitting my HID kit.

If there is anything else you want to know just shout on here and I'll be glad to help if I can.
