Question Light Bulbs

My question is, i have these kinda of headlight pieces. Im currently using Silverstar. My right one just blew out, cant believe so soon, dont know why. I think the the silverstar was 4k and its h1 size. My question is, can i buy a 8.5k light bulbs and not messing up my headlight system? Or would it mess up everything? I guess what i mean, the light bulb and the headlight piece wont mess up if putting an 8k or 6k bulbs in it. The link is example of bulbs i plan on buying and putting into my headlights. Would i be able to put them in and work good?

It doesn't need park distance control, and hates decadence. It is musclepacked, yet lightly wound. It lets you feel the asphalt and get you going with the smallest touch of the pedal. It provokes, seduces, and demands to be driven hard. It looks, sounds, and smells like performance.

You'd be better off putting plain old halogen bulbs in. The ones you are looking at are coated, so it actually makes the lights dimmer. HIDs get their color from the actual gas burning, not from a bluish coating on the bulb. If you want bright lights, bite the bullet and spend $300 on a set of HIDs. Those silverstars are way overpriced and they only last 6 months on average.
