Default Switchback style but color match factory HID's?

Has anyone found switchback style blinkers but that match the factory HID headlight color? The switchbacks are too blue looking for my taste.

Anyone tried these? 5k sounds like it'd be pretty close to 4300 factory color

I have switchbacks from AM and they are blue-er than my 6k headlights. But I bought LED 6K GT500 foglight bulbs from vleds and they match my headlights almost exactly...

My dad has stock HID on his GT500 and purchased vleds 5k LED foglight bulb and they ended up being a tad blue-er than the 4.3k stock

I would say that their LED coloring claims are fairly accurate... Im glad you brought this up, I will definitely be looking into getting their 6k version of this bulb now...

Awesome a real compare! "Tad bluer" is it obvious or more because you were looking at comparing? Pretty sure I'm gonna go for it.. my current corner bulbs are probably more towards a 3k but on the brown side not yellow, they never even matched the halogen headlights, YUCK!

it wasnt obvious at first sight and no one driving down the road would notice a difference at all, but when you get down at eye-level with the headlights you can see a slight difference.... its still 10x better than the stock halogen bulbs!!!!
