gp thunder 8500k h11 match with lux lci halogen angel eyes?

Hi

So I have lux lci halogen angel eyes and gp thunder 7500k h11 fogs at this moment and they match pretty well. But now I was planning to try gp thunder 8500k fogs. So i would like to hear your opinions about this, should I buy and try them or not? My angel eyes are now more white than my 7500k fogs so if I put 8500k fogs they match beter? Or is 8500k too blue?

I think 8500k would be too blue. as well higher color temp bulbs are significantly dimmer and harder to see. I would recommend nothing higher then 4500k for the main driving lights

gp thunder bulb kelvin ratings are abit strange because I have 7500k bulbs at this moment and they are not blue at all, they are white but not as white as my angel eyes. so I was thinking if I should try 8500k bulbs now.
Im using these bulbs on my fog lights only because when its abit dusk I drive my angel eyes+ fogs on.

I have heard that it is very hard to install hid kit on fogs without error messages if you have 2005 e90 320d so thats why I am trying to get best matching coloured halogen bulbs.
