Best option to match fog lights to factory hid's

Like the title says, I want to upgrade my fog light bulbs and was wondering what the best option would be to match my fogs to my factory hid headlight color output. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just out of curiosity, how could 7500K bulbs match the OEM HID 4300K headlights?

Is it because they are halogen fog bulbs instead of actual HID fogs?

Most of these manufacturers mislabel their lights anyway when it comes to halogens to where I almost believe he may be right.

At any rate, 4300K HID kits we sell would match the factory 4300K xenon low beams.
