Default 4000K-5000K LED bulb color/temp?

Ok, I'm really sorry for asking a stupid question about LED bulbs but, has anyone found any interior LED bulbs (3022's) and parking lamp bulbs (194's) that are in the 4000k-5000k color range?

I installed the Xenon Depot Philips 4300k HID conversion kit and I can't find any LED parking bulbs to match the headlight color which is pretty much bright white. Everything I've tried is always far to blue. As for the dome light bulbs, I thought I was going to like the 6000k and Xenon White colors but nope. Still way to blue especially with my light gray seat color. They are decently bright which is what I want, but way to blue.

I guess if I have to go back to incandescent bulbs I will, but I was hoping to use LED's instead.

The most important match though is for my 4300k headlights. Anyone know where I can get a pair of 194's in the 4000k-5000k color temp range? Or am I stuck with incandescent? Thanks!

Hi,

I'm a fan of these Philips T10 194 LED bulbs. I know they are advertised as 6000k, but the color is closer to 5000k (pure white).

Here is a review of them installed:

I actually did try those very same 194 Philips Bulbs and they look blue/purplish next to the headlights. Because those were listed as 6000k and looked so blue when I had them installed I thought a 4000k or 5000k bulb may match better.

I'm even running some Xenon White 3022 interior lights and they are still too blue for me. They have an almost sterile look. For the interior I may try a more warm/yellow'ish color and see what it looks like but finding actual 4000k-5000k LEDs is not nearly as easy as I thought it would be.

I have not unfortunately. I was on a big quest to find 'em but then I bought a truck and that's been sucking up all my time and money. Once I'm done with the truck I'll start back on the car again.
