    Tama. Usually color temperature of anything 6000K and above. By the way, the K in 6000K denotes color temperature, not the brightness. Brightness is measured by Lumens.

The projector type headlamp assembly system is perfect for HIDs thus BMW and other premium car manucaturers use this headlamp assembly for HIDs.
    I didn't understand almost none of what you said above...

    On the side note, projector headlights aren't meant for HID's only, and there are non-projectors that are made for HID's... Check on the previous-gen Acura CL, they have non-projector headlights but they come with HID's and they do not blind drivers in the oncoming traffic at all... On the other hand, take the USDM Acura Integra, they came with projector headlights and halogen bulbs, try putting HIDs on them and you'll see some mad glares...

    There are projector headlgihts that are meant and NOT meant for HID's, and there are non-projectors that ARE meant and not meant for HIDs... With it being a projector does not always mean it's good with HIDs...

    Nakakalito ba pagkasulat ko? Sorry po!

    Anyways, PhDM cars are normally equipped with halogen lamps and retrofit HIDs in a halogen headdlamp causes the light to be scattered thus blinding oncoming drivers, as well as the driver of the car infront. Projector type headlamp assemblys are initially meant for Halogen pero now it's desinged to accomodate either halogen or HID and still giving the owner a very good cutoff point for the beam.

    The main point here is that if a car owner decides to use HID in his car, he should make sure that the headlight assembly was desinged to accomodate such. If not, the owner should get the proper headlight assembly to accomodate the HID.

    I use Narva Arctic Blues myself. At 4000K, it's the same as the Philips Blue Vision but costs less. Or you can go 5000K with the Philips Diamond Vision, if its street legal there. That is, if you want to use stock wiring. Otherwise, go for a HID conversion at 6500K and upwards.

    Pedeng sumagot? Mga assembled jeep na ang headlights nila ay sa mga puno nakatutok, kaya kahit mag low beam sila, nasisilaw pa ding ang kasalubong nila. Kainis dami nito sa Cavite.
