I am lookin to upgrade the factory xenons on my 04 GT, to maybe something like 8000k as i have them on my spider and they look awesome, would I have to change the ballast as well or would i just be able to replace the bulb?:confused:

If they are D2S units, just get the Philips 85122+ units.

They are higher kelvin (5000k) than factory ones (4100k)

I would NOT advise you or anyone else to fit anything higher than 6000k unless you want to drive around in the dark.

The higher the kelvin, the less lumens the output is.

On top of that most police forces take a dim (no pun intended) view of people that fit these "dark" bulbs.
