Matching HID fogs?

Hey all. I drive a 2008 GT that came with the hid headlights from the factory. I love driving with the fogs on at night as well, but them being two different colors kinda bugs me. So I've been looking at hid kits for them to match the color of the headlights. Does anyone here know what color temp the stock bulbs are in the hid option? They look like they are 5k to me but I'm not sure...also, has anyone done this exact thing and have pics/advice? Any help is appreciated!
