I got in some yellow HID kits last week, They are the only ones available in India I suppose. It's not like a stock yellow bulb which would be 3000k. All sizes are available with the supplier,The kit was a H4 Hi Lo, and the light becomes yellow after it heats up. Only sham is it does not look like a HID anymore because of the color but is pretty bright. Below is a snap of the kit being tested on my car.



Here is a snap of the 6000k HIDs on my car

@blue raven: Better way to take pics of the lighting would be, the view from inside the car.

I got scared seeing those FLASH bulb kinda lighting

Blueraven: Take some pictures from inside the car. Then the quality of the bulbs can be seen.

As it is H4, I suppose it can be used in Getz aswell.

All cam phones come like that, the snap is to depict the color, not brightness or anything.
The test unit was installed once, and it was bright , I have 6000k HIDs in my own car, anyone can come and see the beam themselves in person. The 4300K HIDs have the same intensity, just that they have better visibility on road as they are yellow.
I am installing a pair of H1s in a Lightforce fog soon will post snaps then.
bottom line is there is no HID within 15k range which beats this in performance in any department.

I have to check if they are only available and they have to suit the type of connector your ballast has, or else wire cutting and taping will be involved.
Will check and let you know for sure.
