Might want to check local lwas also. I dont know if that would cause unwanted attention or not also.

Yellow lights are the hotness these days... I'm running Luminics JDM yellow bulbs in my fog lights right now. I say go for it. Post some pics and we'll tell you if it looks good or not.

In my opinion my 05 WRX has the worst headlights in any car I've ever owned. I did something about it and upgraded to HID and have never been happier. I initially got 6000K bulbs that were arctic white and got unwanted attention from the police so now I'm standard 4300K regular white.

5000K is a nice choice if you want plenty of whiteness and slightly less blueness

If you go past 5000K you actually have less light output. My advice is to go with 4300K which is the stock heat range.

I was always under the impression that with HIDs, the higher the number, the brighter the light - but, as the number increases beyound 4300K, the brighter, more intense light becomes less usable to the human eye because our eyes physically can't process the light so it actually begins to look dimmer to us even though, technically, it is brighter.

4300K is ideal, producing the highest amount of usable light, but doesn't give the intense "blue/white" that many people are looking for with an HID upgrade

6000K is probably one of the most popular intense blue/white lights out there right now

5000K is a slight compromise between the two, giving slightly more usable light and less blueness than the 6000K kit and slightly more intense whiteness than the 4300K kit
