I think there may be some confusion here. The Kelvin ratings I was talking about are in reference to the color of the HID low beams, not the AEs. I would want a HID Kelvin rating similar to OEM; i.e., in the 4200K-4300K range. As Sam mentioned above, I'm definitely looking for a very OE-type appearance to the lights and the Kelvin rating of the HIDs will affect that. If I could somehow justify the cost of adding the OE HIDs to my car, I would do it in a heartbeat. Heck, I've done it on several cars, but for a far more reasonable cost than what it would take to do the same on the 1er. And, then you have to have the car coded too, further complicating it!
