Headlight and center fog lights question

Anyone know a bulb replacement for the OEM bulbs on both headlight n center fogs? I don't have HIDs and want that HID look on all four lights but don't want to get a projector. Some lights are too blue for me and I don't like that. What's the whitest light out there that's also bright? And also, whats the strength of the OEM bulbs? Thanks everyone.

Has anyone tried these

I've had good luck with Sylvania Silverstars in the past. They are very bright, very white, and do not blind other traffic.

I need to get a set for my DD, the stock headlights on that Mazda2 are weaksauce! Sometimes you can find good deals on eBay for these bulbs.

I put in some silver star ultras. They have a great white beam of light. Looks good to me. I didn't want to do the HIds either

What's the difference between the regular ones and the ultra?

Installed the sylvania silverstar. They look great at night. Brighter than the stock but not to much brighter. They're a lot whiter which was what I wanted. and just a big FYI. Most auto part stores have in the computer that the fog lights are h11's. That is incorrect. The 2011 5.0 actually uses an h10/9005. Guy was cool enough to exchange them for me.

This is the new lights against the wall
