But just a little bit cooler white.
Are you on your original bulbs? Probably. You do realize that HID bulbs lose their 'brightness' over a few years. The performance gets degraded with time.

Are those GS300 equipped with projectors? If so then they will appear more ideal, than just the non-projector HID housings.

I have a 6k kit in my ES300 and my dad has a 6K kit in his RX330 [projectors] and his appear more blue than my kit, as i have them in a halogen housing.

from a physics perspective following the one and only Kelvin scale, 4300k color has most lumens output, the higher you go on the scale past that, you lose lumens. lumens=brightness, light output, etc.
after reading the OP again, i see he's mostly interested in the color aspect, blue. unfortunately "brightest" got mixed in there where it'll never be unless it's something close to 4300k.
So you mean that better use the OEM HID 4300k instead of getting the orthers HID ???
Whta are you looking for?

"look/color appearance"? -> other HID
"ideal, closest to performance oriented output?" -> OEM HID

Do we need to change the ballast to fit with new HIDs or we still use the OEM?

Nope, just need bulb like you're changing light bulb.

The # doesn't mean increase or decrease power/wattage or anything like that.

It is funny, a lot of people (ricers) think that getting higher # is better.. haha
