Default HID Lights

Hello,
anyone have any experience with HID lights? I had them in my Accord I put the 6000k light blue ones in them and they looked great. Although on my 2005 a8 the headlights themselves are quite nice but the fog lights are still that not so bright yellowish. I got a quote from a guy to do my fog lights for $140 installed for a Philips HID kit. Anyone know how much I should be paying or what brand/color is good to match my stock headlights?
Thanks

The stock headlamp temperature is 4300K or so. 6,000K would be too blue to match the headlights.
