I believe they are the brightest HID's in the market. Although they are 7k they look pure white like leds.

Left is the osram, the one on the right is the OEM bulb.
as tested by TRS and others, they're not anywhere near 7000K temp, closer to 5500K. But yes one of the best bulbs on the market currently (and what I run as well)

Car is up on stands whilst I respray the brake calipers, so took the chance to give it an interim oil change & fitted the BMS alloy filter housing which has the benefit of a heat sink machined into it.

Please post pics of your calipers when you're done! I'm considering this myself, I just haven't chosen a color
