I believe all you would need is a pair of 6000K D3S HID bulbs to replace your stock bulbs

i think the 5000k bulbs would be right for me then. I have factory HID but they look just a tad yellow to me.

5000K matches the GT LED fog lights perfectly. Changing out the bulbs it a MAJOR PIA. There is 1st a special spring loaded clip that holds the bulb in, then a bunch of "fingers" around the bulb hole opening that all fold inward when the bulb is pushed into the housing that you do not want to bend. I ended up taking the front bumper off and the headlights off the car to switch them out because breaking or bending any of those components I mentioned above would require buying a new headlight and you have very little space to see or fit your hands behind the headlights.
