Correct me if i am wrong.
The color may be more similar but the intensity of the light can not be matched because the halo rings have a different design. So with aftermarket higher kelvin colors, you end up with a blue light that doesn't look right because it is too dim and the light is not evenly distributed.

Given this problem, I'd rather have the 5000k white color so it looks factory than a blue hue that looks obviously aftermarket with the headlights on.

The key for me is to not look aftermarket but that isn't everyone's preference.
