12000k is very blue almost purple.
I reccommend 6000k or 8000k. They are the brightest. The more blue the bulb is, the less bright it will be.
Contrary to most popular belief...
The human eye... (and also in terms of output lumens) see 4300K has the HIGHEST output of light.
Also.. a high quality bulb which DOESNT use shield tinting.... 4300 is also seen as PURE WHITE
None of the OEM manufacturers run higher then 5000k (mercedes, BMW etc.....)
6000 is almost way to blue for me... (again if you use a good bulb... DDM's are......okay I guess but)
8000k will flirt with getting you pulled over....10,000k... plan on it.
I installed a DIODE DYNAMICS kit at 4300k w/ digital 35w ballasts and relay kit......
First.. diode dyanmics was awesome to work with (paul the owner is great!).... 2nd.... it came out perfect.....
To blue and you might as well put a civic badge on your truck.....
