Low Beams and Parking Lights

I am very pissed off about the low beams and parking lights, after all the hard work the colors dont match. I got the Hiper Industries Low Beams and some generic superwhite 194 LEDs. The low beams looks whiter than stock but not brighter, but the parking lights look bluish so overall it doesnt match.I'm thinking about buying some brand H1s like silverstars or philips, but i dont know where to get 194s for the parking lights to match it. For those of you who changed your low beams and parking lights, does it match? If it does please let me know what brand you're using.

I also have the same problem. Somebody told me superwhite LED at Autolumination.com. But I want to make sure it is really pure white instead of blueish!!

I have another question, how come my fog lights have a bulb but it doesnt light up? The low beams alone dont look right to me.

I'm having the same problem. I got the 4-LED superwhite 194 parking lights from Autolumination.com and they're bluish. I like that, but it does not fit with my Silverstar low beams which are pure white.
I'm thinking of trying to find new 194's or finding some headlights that will match the 194's, like Catz Aqua White or Azzurri white.

Maybe this is a good question for liteswap. If I got the Catz Hyper White 194 bulbs ( http://www.liteswap.com/merchant2/merchant...egory_Code=LEDs ), which Catz headlights would those match?

I got the LEDs but they were too white, then I bought super white halogens and they were blue-ish too. The lowbeams are whiter now but are noticeably dimmer during night driving but it looks different. Oh well, to do what we want you need to buy a HID kit.

I went with Amber bulbs for the parking lights. Getting them to match would just be too hard.

skeurton's lights look like it matches, eurolite crystal white 194s with hiper industries h1s. How do you get the fog light bulbs to work? When I was changing my parking lights I see the fog light bulbs but they dont light up.

All white LEDs have varying degrees of blueishness. They actually emit blue light, but depending on how much phosphor coating each one has, permits different levels of white light through. To find the whitest of a batch, you'd have to order a bunch and light them up side by side and then pick out the whitest of the batch. It's expensive, but I had to do this for the rear license plate lights with 194 white LEDs ($1.50 each) I bought about 5 and picked out the 2 whitest.
