Question SXL HID Bulb change?

The stock HIDs seem to be yellowish and ofcourse are not that bright and disperse well (NHTSA confirmed). Is there a way to make them whiter? Bulb or ballast change?

Can these work with stock ballasts? Probably no, right? Different connectors.

I know long ago bump but might as well

Which bulb did you end up using and was it a closer match in color to your fogs?
The fogs look more 6000k.
