Useful info - I just upgraded to similar myself and agree it puts the feeble factory lights to shame...this is definitely the way forward

5000K is going to be the best match with the factory LED DRL's

Most factory LED DRLs are between 5,000-5,500K

I read somewhere (DD's website?) that HID's will increase in color temperature...get bluer...as they age. For this reason, better to get closer to 5000K versus 5500k or 6000k.

Had some issues the hid installs cutting out on me. I'm going to stay with the stocks until PIAA or someone comes out with some compatible plug and plays that are a bit whiter to match the drl's

All HID bulbs will change color as time progresses. They have a typical lifespan of about 3-5 years depending on use

5000K and 6000K are always popular choices, 4300K is OEM. 8000K is the most "blue" option we offer and it's an icy blue vs. 10000K Deep blues with much lower output

I got the kit. The 6000 is very blue, the 5000 is great. However the ones I ordered would shut off, randomly when driving. So had to return them. I am waiting on a plug and play solution like a PIAA light or something. Went back to the stock lights due to the issues.

Is it possible that you got a bad kit? I read some good reviews on it. What are the other options?

Did you install it with the anti-flicker module? That's going to prevent any of the Chrysler's CanBus related issues

Does the kit come with the antiflickin module? And is that also easy to install?
