Anything over 4200K are meant for show only and not street legal (bear in mind that Sun light is 4850K) so anything too high causes dazzle and therefore a distraction on the road.

Audi do full LED headlights, they're pretty awesome as long as they work :P

 

Anyway on topic, I have 6000K HID's on my Fiesta, and did on my Mk7 with 6000K CREE sidelights and fog lights, I did briefly have HID main beams, but they came out after a while for a different car and if honest for the amount of time they were used, wasn't worth the £55 they cost. They did work to flash (as although HID's require a 'warm-up' they do briefly come on at full intensity, although they'll never work as well as bi-xenon lighting that is OEM, due to the ballast differences. 

 

Best just keeping the main beam as something like an OSRAM NightBreaker or something really.

Cree LED reverse lights fitted in mine.They are really bright outside the car but have to say when reversing not the absolute best.Think this is because they just shine straight out withno reflection like a normal bulb.

Aye, they're bright like (955's) but could do with ones that aren't closed at the side so can project to the sides too :) but mines are awesome :) I've attached a few pics for your viewing pleasures ;)image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

They are the same as mine I think.

 

Found these which look like they might be good but a bit pricey even though it is for 2.
