Even if you stick with the same maker, no two bulbs are ever alike. There will be minor differences....so minor that its unnoticeable by the naked eye. As you know...HID bulb color changes ever so slowing in time. They tend to turn more blue....so if you're swapping out an old HID bulb with new ones, same manufacturer, same production run, etc....there could be a chance the color temp (even if both are labeled 4300K) may look different.

There is the color standard but every company seems to have their own idea of what color their product emits. Maybe its just wishful thinking on their part. To answer your question....nope.

Would also like to know how Sylvania Silverstar Ultra & Philips Crystal Vision Ultra score.

Anyone have pics of these beside Lexus OEM Xenon? What bulb is the closest match?

Wow this would have made my life a whole litter easier before I went to Super-Autobacs and trying to decide what color/brand to get. *Great info*

Very good info. Some are accurate and some are way off in terms of the temps.
