OE Color for BMW Xenons

What is the OE color on BMW's Xenon lights?
ie. 4200k, 5200k, 6000k??

Looking to buy Xenons for my wife's truck, and I was told that 4200k is the usual OEM color, but others are saying 5200k. I'm looking for the OEM-like color.

two things, stock OEM xenon color from the bmw is 4300K for sure.

secondly, are we talking bmw xenon color or like acura TL style color cuz they look totally different even with the same temp (acura tl looks more blue like 6000K, i guess because of the angle) if you want more acura tl style, get 6000K. i have them, check out my sig, all 6000K
