We have members who have reported a good match for both.
My opinion : only oncoming cars see your lights at night, because you're behind the wheel, so what matters most to you should be output, not color matching. 4300K offer the most usable output.
Trust me, oncoming cars don't care if the headlights match the DRLs. What they do care about is proper headlight aim (yours) and their eye comfort. 4300K is more comfortable to look at than 5000K or higher (higher temp color = worse).
Guess which ones I have ? Yeah, 4300K.

Lol just giving you a hard time. I couldn't help myself.
No, I hear you. I'm very much a 'function over form' kind of guy, but that doesn't mean form isn't still a lesser factor. To me, anyway. (Everyone has their own opinion, right? Some people ONLY care about appearance. I don't condone that.) I think the KL is a gorgeous vehicle, and I want to compliment that by replacing the ugly, poor-performing yellow halogens with a set of beautiful, well-performing clean white HIDs. I'm not paying $200 for a pair of pretty colored lights. I'm paying that much for better road illumination and increased safety for myself and for other drivers around me. But if enhancing the look is integrated into that purchase, then why not?
I don't need the sets of lights to be a dead-on match, but I'd sure like it if they weren't glaringly obviously different. If either color matches fine, and the 4300 outperforms the 5000, then 4300 is a no-brainer. If the performance gain was negligible but the 5000s matched way better, I would go for the 5000. Performance holds a lot more weight to me, but appearance is a consideration too.
I'm not trying to be argumentative, if that's how it sounds. I do appreciate your input. Just letting you know where I'm coming from.
