As stated, anything over 6k is pointless.
Not really pointless. Just that the eye stops bending the color as actual light output. Once you reach a high enough spectrum on the kelvin scale, its hard for the human eye to translate it.

My previous Caddy V (2005) ran 8000K, my current Jag runs 8000K, and my G8 has an 8000k kit in it as well. I think light output is fine. Most people don't go over 6000K. Most OEM kits run closer to the 8K mark though.

The projectors in your aftermarket kit may give a real halo effect. Should still work fine, but may send rays of light in a few additional directions. Just depends on how well the projector was built/put together.
You know better then to Hassel the Hoff!
