Hey guys can anyone tell me whats best or recommended watt ballast the 35w or 50w. Any pros and cons of going with one over the other? I have decided to get the 5k hid kit. Just cant decide on 35 or 50 watts. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

I got the 35 watt 5000K (actually 5500K) and I wish I would've gone with the 6000K 50w kit. I thought they would be a little more blue-ish than they actually are and I also thought it would be overkill with 50W. I would say that they are pretty much as bright, maybe a little brighter than OEM. I have projectors BTW.
