HID's ordered...best fog bulb to match??

Just order retro-solutions H13 5000 HID's. Thanks to all the recommendations from PSN. Looks like a great company.

Now the question...has anyone upgraded the fog light bulbs so the color matches the bright white of the HID's? I have no problem buying a set of HID's (35w or 55w) for the fogs, but I want to be able to use the fogs on the road without blinding the world and getting pulled over. I'm thinking the combo would be too bright for street use? Anyone running both sets?

So I'd like to start by replacing the fogs w/ halogen bulbs that match colorwise.....anyone use Silverstars, etc???

If it was me, I'd put a more yellow 3800K HIDs and modify the switch so they can come one with the marker lights.

I keep forgetting I have fog lights since I got the hids.

One day I may upgrade them if I ever remember they are there.

With 5K, run silverstars. I had 6K HID's in my old car, and silverstar bulbs for fogs, and my fogs color seem to me like 5K by the color. If you want to run HID, my suggestion is use the same bulb color. It will look way better.
