H8 Angel Eye Bulbs ?

So I decided to change my yellow angel eyes/coronas and bought some 5000K Xenon Philips White Vision xenons to replace the stock bulbs. However, after changing the bulb, only one of my rings (the inside one) turned white excluding the outer ring and the eyebrow. Where did I go wrong ?

Nothing is wrong actually, its a comp of the design of the headlights and the color of the bulb. the outer rings are generally a slightly different color due to their shape and the way the light reflects off the grooves in the back. The color of this bulb will make it appear more dramatic as well. As well with a halogen bulb only a small % of the bulbs light is aimed towards the optics that go to the outer angel eyes.

If you step back from the car does it look better, as that will make the outer rings more even looking

The other option is to go with a LED solution that focuses more light into the outer rings too.
