I wouldn't recommend anything over 5-6K because the lumens are lost and you won't get much light on the actual road. They look cool but it is just bright at look at but not enough visible light on the ground for night driving any long distances. 5K can give you a nicer white output and have almost the same lumens output as the 4300K bulbs(OEM).

Stock for Stock is the same. Are you wanting a more blue or purplish look? Both are D2S bulbs.

I run 6K in my Turbo and will try out 5K when I get around to it.

There are many brands. Eric at SPP(Supreme Power Parts) is a vendor and I have done business with him and trust his word. I wouldn't pay more than $125-$150 for a set.

Phillips Ultinon 6K might work for you as well.
