Sahil, if you read my review, I said I went for the crystal vision as they are white. The Diamond vision have that blue effect to it that you ae talking about. Pick 'em up, should look sweet on your car!

Just to add guys, the Bluish White light which you are addressing to is probably the chinese version, which I've also experienced. They are only good for the looks, other than that they are totally useless. They end up blinding you on the roads if the car opp you is on a high beam, specially when the roads are wet.

I did enquired about the true xenon HID kits with 12000K. It's costing Rs 18000 with one year warranty on the bulbs. This is including the full kit+installation.

Hope this helps

its all crapy if your aiming at better visiblity
get xenons or use the mellow yellow ones

ps if your buying xenons please buy 6000k or 7500k max

IMHO blue light is pretty useless on the road as blue colour disperses the most, even the hids I have now are 4300k that has yellowish hue to it and the light is super bright, though not as cool as 8000k xenons
had diamond vision in my car, have a video of the lights in dense fog

hey if ur talking about crystal vision / diamond vision these are no match for actual xenons ... they just appear white / blue but are not powerful and dont have the look / brightness of HID Xenons... 8000 k xenons look awesome !! I want a full conversion kit for my corolla.. including the fog lights.. will hopefully get it from singapore.. was thinking about 12000 k .. lets see which is more practical / better

one can easily make those halo rings for show by putting flexible neon lights available in market for Rs.350 each from Projektz....but the problem arises in mounting them in the current headlights.I tried in my old headlights lying of my 2001 ford ikon but i broke it....i replaced it with the crystal ones once i had painted the car

Guys, the K rating is the colour of the light.
Approximately
3K is yellow
6K is white
8K is bluish
12K is ultravioletish

Higher K may look good cosmetically but is less functional.
Our eyes are most sensitive to yellow light, less to white, lesser to blue and blind to UV!
That is why most people who use white lights will face visibility issues.

Xenons can live with this limitation because their light output is 3-4 times more than halogen bulbs, so it compensates for lesser sensitivity of eye for white light. But for Xenon lights also it is recommended to stay below 5-6K color for good visibility.

Also a very imp thing is that xenon should always be used with projector headlamps, so that the light does not get dispersed and goes focused as a beam.
This is due to the fact that unlike regular bulb in Xenon bulb there is no filament whose light can be focused thru a reflector, hence a need for projector.

Xenon without the projector optics would disperse widely (hence sharply reducing the range of the light) and will also blind the oncoming traffic. This is the reason why in most countries after market Xenon conversion is illegal, incl in India. An improper showoff setup is bad for others and dangerous for you too...
