I think factory ballasts are 35w. I think I remember MaxPower saying that.

Every manuf. has a different variation of temp color. Maybe they're slightly defective. 6k v 12k is a pretty big difference.

Can you post pics?

I think they are 35w. It seems like the 55w ballasts weren't common to the aftermarket kits until fairly recently. I would think if the factories were using 55w ballasts, that we would have seen them on the market a while back...

I bet you still stand out. Tons of those guys on our side of town put ugly bulbs in, and even in halogen assemblies at that. If course, I can't say that 100% as I'VE NEVER SEEN YOU IN PERSON. Hahaha...

Yes it does stand out that's for sure. I'm not too upset now. It has a nice output and I would say its a 8k-10k
