Colour of Stock Xenons

Looks like my xenons are at the end of their life the light output has dropped off considerebly so looking to change,

I been going through realoem and just need confirmation are the stock bulbs 4100k or 4300k.

From what I worked out they are 4100K but searchign on here I get mixed results could be either.

Car is a e90 LCI.

thanks

I found anything above 5000K is too blue, problem is decent d1s only come with 4300, 4100 or 6000. So 4300K is the ideal in this case just seems the stock seem too yellow to be 4300
