So, I have a pair of projector headlights and plan on getting an HID kit soon for the low beams, but I will leave the brights halogen. Right now I have some 8500k bulbs in them that came already installed in the car when I bought it. But I don't like them because during the day when the lights are off, The housing where the bright bulb is gets all blue looking from the reflection of the bulb. What bulbs should I get to fix this problem, I thought maybe just regular bulbs but I hate the yellow light output they give. Give me your suggestions.

5000k is about as pure white w/o any blue as you can get and are still not yellow at all

Here is a picture to show what I mean. See how the housing is all blue looking from the bulb. I don't want that.

Thanx for the help. I'll probably get these (http://www.autodirectsave.com/prod/Nokya/Bulbs_&_HID/Nokya_White__Headlight_Bulbs/H7_Magnum_Cosmic_White/46#), they look like they don't have to much blue tint on the bulb. Should be good I hope.
