Stock Xenon's

What is the wattage of Stock BMW Xenon Headlights? I am trying to decide what bulbs to get for my 323i from 2000.

I've understood the factory HID is 3700K. I'm not going to stake my life on it, for sure, but does anyone have it in writing for sure that it is 4300K?

I don't have any documents from Philips or anything, but our site vendors that deal with lighting everyday have stated (since the beginning of time) that our stock xenons are 4300K.

From what they've said that most OEM Xenons for any car ranges between 4100-4300K.
