which bulbs look like

ok i know this question has probably been asked 100o times. i have looked for the answer but have only gotten semi answers...maybe some one can set it straight for me.

i'm looking for a bulb to replace the low beam bulb that will give the HID look similar to that of the audis...that purple look from afar that twinkles from purple tint to bright white....i'm sure you know what i mean. question number one..what bulbs will do that? question number 2, what do you normally replace the hi beams with after you change the low beams to that purple-ish tinted bulb...do you leave them as is or go for something whiter. i dont want it to look overly blue...some of these cars i see around here have blue frickin headlights, not what i'm looking for. i know it's possible cause i've seen it on cars that i know dont have HID and i know i didn't do the hid conversion

Well...there's nothing quite like HID...because of the gas...but, the closest thing you'll get to HID (will not have the purplish look though) are sylvania's silverstars. You'll need a pair of H1s for both the low and high beams. I did the HID conversion, and I did only the low beams, cause I hardly use the high beams anyway.

I have noticed though, that some of the GMC suvs have a halogen in them that has some color to it, does anyone know if that's the dome itself doing that? Also, some saturns do that.
