Well oem xenon is 4300k, and depending on what you chose for your HID fogs you will have to make the choice. Most people like the 6000k, if you look at my sig I have the 6000k angel eyes with the stock 4300k xenon in that pick, I've recently upgraded to 6000k xenon bulbs as well.

OEM is 4300k but I'd recommend you go with the 6000k. 4300k IMO is too yellow, the 6000k is a nice pure white. Like cleung said, you can also upgrade your xenons to 6000k to match the angel eyes perfectly.

yea i believe that the HIDs r 4300K also as they match the xenons perfectly, providing the xenons are stock. i am not exactly sure because i bought the car CPO so the previous owner must have put on the HID fogs so i would not be surprised if he upgraded the xenons too. is there neway to chek so i kno for sure?

6000k is the the most common choice and is what I usually recommend as well.
