    Seen a couple posts about these, but just wanted to check a couple things.

    1. Is it possible to get white Non-HID head lights?

    I bought 'white' headlights for my Civic a couple years ago, but they weren't white at all.

    2. What is a good brand to go for.

    3. What 'colour' 6000k?

    4. Simple installation?
    I found it quite a pain in the arse to change the headlights as they're in the wings.

    Thanks as always!

    1) yes 6000k is white as you can get but I perfer 4300k as you get more light
    2) The aftermarket HID kits are all good with 99% from China! I would say the cheaper kits brands are as good as the expensive one , just Look out for warranty.
    4) depends on what you want if you want a slick install then you have to take the bumper off and then neatly route the ballasts and wires. Space is limited on the 8th Generation so a thought out install is the way forward TBH.

    Don't mind doing the installation assuming I can get the damn lamps in!

    H1's for the dipped beam if i'm correct?

    4300k to 5000k is OEM brightness - they give the best light, the higher up the temperature chart you go, the less light is projected

    H1's are right

    I have 6000k and I'm really happy with them. I (personally) would not go higher than that as it'll just look tacky.

    I also managed to find sidelight LEDs that weren't 'blue' and matched the HID bulbs perfectly.
