What fog light color closest matches Litronics?

Like the title says, the Litronics are super white if slightly blue. Bulbs come in a color rating (6000K, 7000K...). What color is closest to the Litronics?

You want your foggers to look like lits? In my old lits the foggers were burnt out and black and curled inside the housing from too bright of bulbs.

LED bulb? Never thought of anything but halogen. How do they look? Any pics of them lit? Would they work for the high beam also?

I don't have pictures, but they look great!
From what I have read on the forum, you don't want to use LED for low beam / high beam due to the heat, you'll burn your lenses...

Or you could install Osram All Season H7s, which are yellow like fog lights.
