1. Yeah the halogen is likely to be on its last legs having burnt and left a sooty layer,

and pops shortly after.  Degrades to fail is probably a short time compared to the D1's

 

2. Pure white.. Some say the 6000k are pure white, but i think genuine 6000k would

be one blue side and less efficient?

 

3. Candle power worked in foggy conditions. :)

 

4. I have the Racing but dare not actually switch them on due to the short lifespan  :D

 

5. No idea on the hours of use, but it has been mentioned many times that the

deterioration is clearly noticeable and they will last a long time before failure.

Regarding the 5000K or 6000K its simple, you don't have to listen to them as the color temperature of our sun during a bright sunny day is ~5000K. 

 

In general, physics will say the same as well, 5000K is the brightest.

 

Many sites also tested HID bulbs and saw the same results... well... no surprises there.

Hi

 

Strange, with halogen bulbs 4300K seem to be the brightest as light spectrum was closer to natural sunlight.

 

The 5000K I used in previous MK3 both in Halogen and Zenon were definitely erring towards a white light, reflective road signs especially would stand out from surroundings. Not such a contrast with the 4300K bulbs.

 

LED’s in the MK5 seem to be a similar light temperature to 5000K Zenon’s.
