Hyper White bulbs to match 6000K HIDs.

Hi guys,
I have 6000K HIDs in my headlights, and I'm looking for a set of hyper white bulbs for my foglights to match my 6000K headlights. Which brand do you guys suggest? Nokya? Luminics? Mtec? GP Thunder?

*Please don't suggest HIDs for the fogs, because I'm not interested in HIDs

Thanks guys!

I tried Luminics, Mtec, and GP before going HID (check my forsale thread for the bulbs I tried). None of standard bulbs will give you exact match.. the Mtec were not white enough, GP were closer but not as bright, Luminics are the closest of the 3 but more expensive. In the end, I went with the same color HIDs.

Do you have xenons for beams? If so, get Philips 6700ks. I have them with my OSS and they're damn close.

I have 6000K HIDs in my headlights and foglights, they both match my LUX H8 perfectly! My 6000K HIDs also matched my OSS (When I used to have them) very nicely.

I was actually looking up this info for my other car since I have 6000K HIDs in the headlights of that car also.

Too bad you didnt get to try Noyka bulbs. I pretty much canceled out GPs and Mtec out of my choices. I'm just stuck between Luminics and Nokya. Everytime I search the two, I get a discussion about yellow bulbs.
