Exclamation Has anyone every mitch-mactched?

Whats going on everybody? Merry X Max btw Quick question, has anyone every mitch matched there headlights and angle eyes with different bulbs? Reason why I asked, is because I want to change my low/high beam bulbs out. The factory 5k is ok, but I prefer the blueish colors 8k-10k. So far I have 10k ae, which look very nice, I've received many compliments on how it looks and you can tell the difference between the factory light and the ae, compared to the lci cars where everything blends together (pure white look). I was thinking of getting a 10k high/low beam bulb, but that would be over kill and take away from the contrast of the angle eyes and lower beam, in addition, to blinding everyone on the road.So I was thinking of something on the softer side probably 7-8k the most. Any thoughts, ideas, has anyone ever just went completely against the norm and did their own thing? That's what Im planning on doing. 10k ae with a low greenish/blue low beam, I think that would look sweet it will definitly be something different.

8k is one of the most popular color temps when picking HIDS.

10k is pretty blue, if you like it then get it.

most people just go with a more pure white (4300k-6000k)
