Good lighting color combos?

OK, i need some advice from anybody out there who feels like they have found the optimum color combo for bulbs out there. I'm talking low beams, hi beams, fogs and parking.

I like the HID look with the bluish tint so i just purchased a set of CATZ azzurri whites. they look white but with a slight bluish tint, similar to the headlights on a beemer. i paired a set of autolumination super white parking lights with these. so far so good, now i need to try to match the hi beams and the fogs. in your past experiences what looks best with this color low beams, would a high beam of the same color go best or would you go the route of maybe a silverstar....stricktly a white bulb to kinda offset the blue tint from the low beams and parking lites?

as far as the fogs go...since they are only operational when the low beams are on, would it look good to match those or again throw a contrasting color in there just to give it contrast...maybe a prismatic color fog? i really don't like the look of yellow fogs, i was thinking either white or the prismatic color.

this is the first time i have ever cared to mess with the lighting on one of my cars so i need some advice from those of you who have gone through switching these things over and over again

thanks

Here's my set up:

Catz 4300 HID lights for low beams (H1)
Silverstars for the fogs (H3)
Silverstars for the highs (H1)
Some Japanese brand LEDs Hyperwhite for parking lights (194)
Silverstar Diadem turn signals (1157)

I like the contrast with the HIDs and the fog lights.

Good question....I don't really know. It's the standard Sylvania Silverstar H1 and H3 bulbs so my guess would be 55 watts.
