Question Yellowish HIDs after replacement

I recently had the dealer replace the HID headlight assembly and bulbs on my 2010 Mazda 3 GT due to a problem with the Daytime Running lights causing the inside of the glass to get foggy. The lights before they were replace were a white/blue color and very bright, but after they were replace are now yellowish in color and don't look as bright. The headlights to me look more like regular halogen projector lights now, and I don't like the look of them now at all.

Has anyone else had this problem? Can the dealer use a different type or brand of bulb to fix the problem? How should I approach this with the dealer, as I would like them to at least look the way they did before.
