Yes the beam is real Xenon, real balasts. Not 10K though, I belive the OEM speck is 4700K for the white light, 6000k for blue and 8000K for purpleish. The OEM kits come with 4700K and are Bosch kits. If you want the in depth details let me know. I will say its worth it though, the lights a sweet and the warm up look awsome!
