Best fog light color temp match to OEM headlights - MTech / Hoen / GP Thunder ??

Which will match best to the OEM head lights in a 2009 E90 with Xenons. Also, being that I have a an LCI with the M Sport package, the H11 are the correct bulb types for the fogs, right?

Alot of H8 bulbs are actually compatible with the fog lights, I ordered some GP Thunder 7500k in H8 on accident, and they fit perfectly in the fogs and look great. I don't have xenons at the moment, but the color matches very well with the 6000k HIDs that one of my friends have.

+1 on the 7500k GP thunders. I'm running them in both my highbeams and my fogs and they match perfectly.

I'm not sure about halogen options but for the HID kit we offer in the fog lights 4300K matches the OEM Xenon Low Beam.
