Is there any way for you to obtain other data values for each? I'm esepecially interested in how many lumens each puts out...

Lumens data not available.....but the wattage may be somewhat helpful....cuz its somewhat proportional to lumens.

awesome thread bro, as always you outdo yourself with this lighting info...might i ask you to go one further? im looking for a real close match to my hids to swap in for my high beams or my fogs (until i get the hid 3000k philips yellow fog kit)..heres the thing, now that i have all that info on the real color temp outputs of these bulbs, is there any exact info on the true output of the philips 4300k HID kit i have installed in my lowbeams? i bought the kit from xenondepot.com (one of CL's sponsors)..i believe they only have the one 4300k kit for the gs to avoid confusion... also, lots of the bulbs pictured seemed to be h4s and what not, do you think the color temp/output real measurements would change any if the bulb type changed? say instead of h4, 9006? i know its probably a stupid question but who knows...im curious..thanks again.

I am 99.9% sure these are not stock harness safe meaning they will melt it.. Stock halogens are 55w.. these are pushin 150-190! not safe I dont think.. Someone let me know if I am wrong..

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.
