Default DDM Hids Question

I was looking into getting a set of DDM Hids bc everybody on the site seems to like them and there prices are great. I've seen a few pics of 6000k and I like it but I think I would like alittle more blue but not sure how 8000k would look in 35w. I heard the 35w doesn't wash out the light as much as 55 so im worried 8000k would be too blue. Does anyone have a picture of there 8000k hids? Thanks! Any pictures and info is always very much apreciated.

8000k is pretty blue. 6000k is perfect for me. And im still rockin the 3000k low beam too. Looks neat!
I cant compare an 8000k for you, but here is a stock halogen vs a 6000k.

I installed the DDM 8000k 35W an here are some pics, I think they look more blue in the pics then in real life. my buddy has the 6000k and I much prefer mine for overall apperance and functionality.

Thanks everybody for the pics. 8000k looks perfect! Do I just order the H7 bulb kit? How do the high beams work? Does the bike give more juice to the high beam side or something? Thanks

The high beams work by the reflector being different inside the high beam side, its the same bulb same brightness just the light is angled differently out of the housing.
