Im planning to mount 8000K deep blue hid system in my car.
Ive heard ppl say it looks really blue... but i need to know if you have to look hard or is it on first impressions.
I also have the option for 10000K deep purple.
Your opinion guys.

My opinion, don't do it. It's hard on all the other motorists out there, myself included. Almost got in an accident when I was blinded by some Xenons comin the other way on a dark twisty 2-laner. Otherwise my opinion (and the opinion of maybe 70% of ppl I know) is that they're plain annoying.

get something not as bright. Try 6000k-7000k ones. What are the ones that BMW and mercedes use?

Whatever you do don't buy them from a guy in a parking lot. He might have just acquired them in that lot. :D
I love to drive behind HID-equipped car not in front.

As long as they arnt too bright, and as long as they arnt those crappy normal lights that are made with blue glass that are made to look like it, but really dont look anything like it, im fine with em.

I say go with a nice 7000k set, not TOO bright, and gets the job done. I don't drive yet but have often been blinded by teens driving w/ xenon's on their cars. Must have been even harder on my mom/dad driving the car.

Im sorry to know that you guys hate xenon. I think its payback time.. cause whether you have em or not there is always some punk with normal halogen lights that has the highbeams on everytime.

I'll stick to my ol' Sealed Beam Halogens, thank you. I am usually pretty courteous to other drivers.
