Default New To Maxima Headlight

My 2006 maxima right headlight turned purple. I got on here and read about it headlight going out good assumption. Havent ordered new headlight because now the headlight is out. low and high beam. Everyonce in a while it will flickr. I know I cant test the ballast but dont want to spend 250.00 on headlights when its a ballast any test i can run besides swapping lights to other side. I know this has been beaten to death on this forum but cant find the same issue anywhere thanks guys.

Go with those suggestions. 4300k will give you factory color. 6000k is bright-white but has a pinch of blue. Either one will give you the brightest option.

Hey I think asked the wrong question I was meaning, what can I replace the stock bulb with to give it some flare? Do the 9012 bulbs come in different kelvins? If it existed I believe I'd want 6000k bulb but I don't have HID, if this is making any sense.....

You want HID's, either have to buy HID headlights or get a HID kit
