These will match your factory HID's (4300K) quite well, but if you put in 6000k or higher I wouldn't bother. I don't think there are any halogens that will.

If you want to match your HIDs, the only option to get a true match is to get HIDs in the fogs

Thanks,

Would it be possible to connect the fogs to the existing ballasts or is this a big no no??

Another HID kit the only way to go?
