PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR CAR WITH THE LIGHTS ON AND YOU DIRECTLY INFRONT OF IT.

It serves NO purpose and just show glare.

Take them from the side or on a white wall if you can find one or have one.

Drop in bulbs are okay, but realy arent as bright as stockers. The correct way is to do a LED retro to even match or exceed stock tailghts.

I havent found a drop in bulb YET that can do such.

well what i mean is i heard a 55w 6000k is like a 35w 5000k. something like that and also the lifespan is shorter on a 55w.
The Kelvin scale is a temperature scale and really just effects the color of the light, 10000k lights are much less effective than 4300k lights.

I've always ran 35W 4300-5k bulbs.

I bought some 55W 6k bulbs and they were super bright and white/blue (more intense) than the 5k 35W. They did not have more blue, but just intense (brighter to naked eye).

If I had to go again, I'd run 55W 5k-6k.

But make sure they are SMD LED's. They are like 5x brighter and if you have courtesy light's in the doors your going to have to search for 360 degree festoon lights.
