GT/CS lower valance fog light bulbs

Anyone have a v6 or GT/CS with the lower valance fog lights (instead of the grill lights)?
They do not match my white headlights (probably 4500k), the lower fog lights are a ugly yellowish color.
Not looking for powerful fog lights but does anyone know where I could get a direct replacement bulb to change the color?

I did a DDM HID kit, get 4500 to get the closest match as you already know. the fogs are a projector style setup so using an HID kit will not cause the same glare issues as HID's in a reflector housing

Thanks for the info and the link!
Do you have a picture of the lights at night?
Also, how was the mounting under the bumper? Are any of the ballast water proof? Any cutting/drilling?

Easy mount under the bumper with supplied screws, you will find a spot
I think it's waterproof I have no issue with water do far.
And it's plug and play no cutting or drilling.

So I was looking at getting HID bulbs to actually match the color of my HID headlights. All the halogen bulbs just won't match. These GT/CS fog lights are completely useless, no light output.
The problem is the fog lights in the lower valance are reflector housings versus the projector housings needed for HID bulbs.
It looks like this is extremely frowned upon as it could blind other drivers. I am thinking that is only for headlights as these housings are pretty small.
I would also only be getting a 35w, like these.
Was going to try 6000k to match the factory HIDs.

Anyone have experience with this?

I'm stumped. Tried to switch out the bulbs last night and couldn't get them to come out of the housing. Definitely not like the V6. How did you all do it? What's the trick I'm missing?
