Modifying a mod... is this possible?

I have the xenoflo hid conversion for my fog lights. They are 6000k, and I would like 4000k-5000k as a rpelacement. The 6000k is too purple/blue. If i buy 4300k bulbs from philips, will they be interchangeable???

I would be a little worried about the ballast. Although in theory it should work fine. Its bascially like just replacing a bad bulb since the new bulb will be the same type (9006). Why don't you just get new Bulbs for your Headlights so they match. The 6K bulb is suppose to be perfect. Just a thought.

The 6000k is more purple/blue than white. My OEM xenons are pure white, and they already match the titanium dde's i have on there. The hid bulbs that came with the kit seemed to be wired up already somehow... so how hard would it be to buy two 4300k hid bulbs and change them. if it is possible at all really.

I don't think there will be a problem as long as the Watt power is the same.
