I originally had the 6500k however I also have a '12 with the LED brow which the 6500k didn't match 100% as it was too blue. Swapped them out for the 5000k and they match perfectly! Also I noticed that the 6500k was bluer then the HID's which looked a bit off as well. From what I've noticed the 3's and 5's with LED AE's the AE's actually dim/turn whiter when the HID's are on which makes them look like they match. I took some comparison pics of the 5000k vs. 6500k and you can def see that the 5000k matches the brow much better.
