      That's interesting. The 5000Ks definitely look better. I may get some 4300Ks.

          Thanks for the pics OP! This explains exactly what I've been saying about using white bulbs behind a yellow lens instead of yellow bulbs. The yellow bulbs never match, but the white ones do. You should use 4300k for the 3000k yellow color, if you want it yellower than 5000k (and a tad brighter)

          eidt: I renamed your thread to something useful lol, and I moved it to the output pic section.

            Interesting! So 4300k on the es300 be yellower and brighter than the 5k.. so for 5k.. how would you describe the color? ? The 5k on the es300 looks way better than 3k and 4300k?

              thanks for moving it and renaming lol
              As far as output 3000k is almost green and one of the fogs looks almost green even when the ballast are warmed up and I will be buying 4,3k bulbs when I get a chance because my wife is always on my case about my hid's

                I can never seem to find 3000K HID bulbs to match the ones I first had. I have the ES300 foglights as well. Here are the ones I bought from TRS last year. The came out way to dark IMO almost look like apple juice. I may just try 4300 or 5000k and that should work fine with the yellow lens. Thanks for posting this

                This is what my older 3000k bulbs looked like when I first got them

                  The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

                            I just wanted to share this pic. One of my old 5000ks has been out, so I went ahead and put my single 3000k in. Made me realize what I've been missing! The camera doesn't quite capture hold golden the 3000k is, but just look at the ground.
