Default xenon Light question!! HELP?

i recently bought a 2009 acura tl.. Love the car but i have a question about the lights. It seems that the xenon hid in the 2009 tl are more white looking but in the 2008 acura tl they have a more purple look. is there a way to get the more purple look? is it just a bulb?

If you want to go for a really "custom" color look you could add your own colored shade to the illumination device. Most likely this is how the factory achieves the effect. Rather than warehousing different model bulbs they simply carry different colored light shades. Get the right custom color hue and people will be stopping and asking you how they can do it

All it is is a higher temperature bulb, but the light's housing can make it look more purplish, blueish, etc. Since you bought a totally redesigned TL, I'm thinking that it has more to do with the housing design, and not so much bulb temp. I think (I'm not a 100% sure) that most Acuras have a 6000K bulb. You could switch them with a higher temperature bulb, but check your laws... many high temp. bulbs are illegal and blind oncoming traffic.
