4,300K has the best visibilty. With 6,000K it's already hard to see in the rain.

Nowadays? What's the difference between now and then? 6k is still 6k.

Either they show you the correct K reading or not. Original Philips 6000K HID D2S of 2004 will have the same 6000K of HID D2S of present.

4300K (yellowish white) or 3000K (yellow) for the rains. you'll have a hard time with 6000K on wet surfaces, especially asphalt.

significant ba talaga difference ng 4300K HID sa halogen na 100/90?  i'm contemplating on upgrading to the latter since mas mura and wala pang hassle sa rain.

you can't directly compare a 4300k HID bulb with just a halogen bulb of a certain wattage.  halogen bulbs also have their color characteristics... which halogen na 100/90 po ba?  yellow?  all-weather?  super-white?

masmalakas pa din talaga ang hid na 4300K compared sa ordinaring halogen bulb kahit naka convertion kit ka pa, headlight booster, etc... or highest watts na bulb gamit mo, hindi pa din kaya tapatan ang 4300K hid.

kahit naka-crystal headlights ka, halogen reflectors pa rin yung headlamps mo so best stick to halogen lamps.  safer for you and other motorists.

If you really want to go on with HID on a halogen reflectors, try to find an HID bulb with glare shields. At least para mabasawan ang upper glare mo, not as much irritating to on coming traffic as when you dont have the glare shield. I prefer the 4300k.

For yellow (3000k) HIDs, do they also "look" yellow when turned off?  Yung parang eggyolk look ng mga turn signal bulbs on crystal headlamps? (You know what i'm saying?  ;))

Sabi ko nga e.  Hehehe.  Let me rephrase; are the bulbs itself color yellow even when not in use?  As in the glass tubing is tinted yellow?

i'm not so sure about HIDs pero pag super yellow or all weather yellow din bulb nila.kase sa hid yung temp naman ang basis ng color hindi yung bulb mismo

yep, 3000k hid bulb has color filters on the outer quartz capsule. it can have a slight hint of color deflections in the reflectors during day time.

3000k is just filtered 4300k cause hid technology cant produce a very low temperature color. lowest is at 4300k +/- 300-400k

ask to lang  po dito ko pwede ba gamitin ang hid bulb ng motorsiklo sa kotse. pundido kasi isa ko hid. may nabibili bulb kaso pang motorsiklo?
Title: Re: HID Question?..
Post by: DTNS on February 18, 2012, 08:40:30 PM
kung pareho bulb type nila, pwede. pero malabo na magkapareho ng bulb ang motor sa kotse.
