Just had my litronics fitted...

just picked up my car from the garage, having had a radiator replaced and Litronics fitted (full headlamp set, not the HID mod). What colour are the lights supposed to be? They are VERY white and obviously Xenon but is there a way to adjust their colour without having to change the bulbs? I really like the blue tinge that xenon's can give and just wondered if it's an easy process. When i first turn the ignition, the lights are exactly as i want them but i'm guessing as they warm up, they turn whiter. Is this normal even?

Cheers

They are as blue as any other OEM xenons on the road. The bulb temp is 4300k, which is standard on all vehicles. The lights look very blue at certain angles and very white at others. Have someone drive your car towards you from a half mile away, it is probably exactly what you are looking for.

To make them very blue, you just need to swap the bulbs, but it ends up not having the HID reflective effect and visible light output is lower as it gets bluer.
