Hello,

HID Bulbs uses lesser Power than Standard Halogen Headlights -
As against Halogen Bulbs like 60/65 Watt for 12 Volt - HID Bulbs are just 35W or 55W

However these HID Bulbs has Kelvin Color Temperature as below :-
» 3000K - Yellow
» 4300K - Yellowish White Light for Enhanced Visibility
» 6000K to 8000K - White with Slight Bluish Impact - Strong Visibility

Been its reasonable to use HID in 3000K or at max 4300K - been otherwise of higher Power HID Bulbs - the whiteness of these lights increases too much which creates a glaring effect and can cause light blindness for a while to drive on opposite side.

HID Bulbs are best when used with projectors as this will let car light flow in same way, else the light will spread out
Been the model in question is Projector one - its yes is possible to use HID Bulbs upto 4300K Color Temperature

Hope should help !!
