Upgrading HID Bulbs

Anyone try different bulbs for our F10 HIDs to get a little brighter and better color? I dont want them blue because it reduces the visibility but would like something that is a little nicer so less yellowish.

Thank you

Sorry if I'm jumping on an old post, but I need to post something to activate my membership before I can post some posts of my own.

The bulbs are one of the items I'd like to upgrade and the link doesn't seem to work for me and I need spoon feeding as I've never had a Beema before!!
