I think people have recommended the 4300's as they are bright enough without giving off to much of a blue light....
But saying that I have gone for a cheap 8000 on mine, just waiting for it :p

Only when you go from low beam to high beam, might also be worth doing the dual headlight mod, so the low beam remains on at all times, and only the high beam is switchable.
probably a stupid question but why would this cause problems? i thought you should have both HID bulbs? o_O

Because HID bulbs are not instant light, there is a delay as the ballast charges, so switching from low to high causes a temporary loss of lighting. It's also not good for HID lights to be switched on and off as it shortens there life. Yes it is a short period in time, but it's still an outage, and now think, what happens if the HID unit fails in one, the other has switched off, then you have to come back, it's definitely not a situation I would want to be in.

Or do the r6 switch mod so you get hazards and it does the dual h/l mod too :)

ok i see now thanks for clearing that up :p does that apply to xenon bulbs from halfords? the ones that dont require any fiddling around or drilling etc just slap them in to the existing holders?

No the xenon bulbs from halfords are fine, they are just an uprated ordinary bulb as in they are a filament type bulb.
