If you don't want to change it all over to HID's then get a bulb that is around 6000K that is just about as white as you can go without getting into the blue tint. Silverstar claims to have the brightest but I'm still skeptical of that. HTH

I agree with tennisshoes... stay at 6000k for a good white light. The blue lights may look cool but you can't see as good. Yes, they do cost a little money but HID is the best way to go. You might be able to find a deal at a salvage yard.
