Best Angel Eye Bulbs for Matching LCI Eyebrow LED

Hey guys,

I searched around and discovered that 5000k seems to be the best colour temp for matching the angel eyes to the LED strip. The thread ended with LUX V3 being the best option.

Seeing as LUX V3 is no longer in production and V4/5 has trouble fitting in our headlights due to the oversized ballast I'm looking for other suggestions (Been there, done that with V4. Sold after getting constant ADH errors from the motor jamming when the headlight tried to turn left/right but the ballast was in the way. This could just be me, others have been able to get them to work)

I picked up some LCI Xenon/ADH headlights to replace my pre-LCI Xenon/ADH headlights and would like the angels to match as closely as possible (pics below for reference)

Currently I'm looking at Mtec's (4750k/7000k), Top Gear Solutions HPBs (80W or 160W, 6000k), or even some 5000k or 6000k halogens and coding the output higher. From those of you with LCI xenons, please share your recommendations. Thanks in advance!
