Stock M3-GT 2010 Bi-Xenon Temperature

Hi,

What do you think is the stock color temperature for the bi-xenon headligt on a 2010 Mazda 3? I'm trying the match the rest of the light bulb color to the Xenon light.

Any experience on what works the best? 5k? Warmer? Cooler? Any info would help.

Many thanks!

1st gen was 4300K so I'd assume they would keep it the same.

Thank you both. Since all LEDs are in the 5000-5500k range, I'll have to match the Xenon light to the LEDs instead... Fun fun...
