    4300 is the closest to oem and the whitest available .....and the least likely to get your collar felt

    4300K is the factory fit, and although it looks good behind the lense, the light on the ground is pretty much halogen colour, if not more intense. Difficult to take photos of, but the 6000K is definitely the best...

    German cars, Merc / BMW / Audi all use 6000k as standard and all have a slightly blue tinge to them.

    Japanese cars use somewhere between 5000-5200k (I'd need to look up the exact figure, but they all come from the same suppliers over there), and give a pure white light with no yellow or blue.

    So 5000k.
