H7 bulb to match 7000K Angel Eyes ?

I just installed Helix 7000K Angel Eyes and I'm really happy with the colour. It's very close to the stock Projector Xenons on my 2002 325xi. Slightly blue/white, just like the projectors.

Now the obvious glaring issue is the H7 bulbs are completely yellow
Is there a bulb that matches the xenons in colour ?

BTW [ Are all Xenons referred to as Projectors and vice versa? Are all Xenons the same colour (slight blue/white)? ]

I think teh slight blue tinge is really cool. I remember noticing it way before I ever owned an E46. It's nice to finally have in on my own car

Thanks in advance!

Anyone? Can this be done with just a bulb swap?
