You can do just as well with a 6000 or a 4000. A 10k is not legal, anything upto 6000k is.

The 10,000 k will literally blind the on-coming traffic. I highly recommend you go for the 4000k or the 6000k.

I think anything above 6000k is illegal.

In Chennai even 10000k HID'S does not attract the cops but its always safe to follow and obey rules which is for your good and others too.

I am not a GURU, but i do have some idea about HIDs. IMO get the 4300k HID which will give you good output and at the same time wont attract the cops too. For more info on HIDs you may check this thread.

Karan..
Congrats. I see that you got the projectors. That's the same I use. WOW.! How much did you pay?
Anyways, coming back to the topic.
PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM 10000K HIDS. They are way off the limit. This will not serve any purpose other than just show off.
If you are looking for street legal HIDs then go for 4300k or 6000k. Anything above 6000k will be illegal. Although 6000k itself is not legal, you can go for those too.

What are your priorities?
1) Looks/turn people's head?
2) Functionality?

1) Go for 6000k
2) Go for 4300k

I would suggest you to go for 4300k itself. Check out my car's light output. The light output is good.
Also, this headlight will manage to attract public attention even without turning the lights on. Park light will do the trick. Anything else, let me know.
Cheers.!

Yes, go for 6000k for HL and 8000k for fogs. Note that, the HL and fogs will have different colors since they use different color temp.
HL will be white while fogs will be blue.
