Are you going for look, functionality, or both? The 10K bulbs might look cool but you'll have limited visibility due to light output. Higher color temp=less light output. The 6K are a good balance between looks and light output. I also like you matching you other LED idea. Here is what my 6k setup looks like.
FYI: the LED is not constant
I'd recommend this site for bulbs. Not because they are the cheapest (good fair prices) but I've have great experience with their products for 5+ years. Only thing I would not recommend I'd the SMT LED wedge bulbs, due to failure and not quite 6k color.

Yea I decided to go with the 6k.
Wow! Your setup looks awesome!
I'm looking for mine to look exactly like that. What are those little orange circles called that you replaced? Also are those fog lights bulbs? Or normal hid blubs
Thanks for the kind words. I think you'll be happy. improves the looks yet still functional. Those are 06 projector lights, which have a clear vs. orange BLINKER LENS. When they added the projector to the headlights they also eliminated the orange blinker lens that was constant on and blinked with the turnsignal. I think they sell clear blinker lens, BUT you have to open the housing. People do it, but I'd be afraid I wouldn't get them back together. The 06 projector are far superior the the 03-05 reflector lens as far as visibly even though both are HID units. Used to be one of the first/best upgrades to do, but discontinuation of the $500 OEM sets new, has caused supply and demand to kick in and they now can go for upwards of 1K.
The fog light you see is a HID conversion kit for the fogs. I got them at the place above also (about $65 for the slim kit). Easy to install. You drop the bumper, remove the lights and install the kit. Bulbs can be replace w/out the bumper cover removal, but it is way easier to take the time to remove the lights and install is cleaner.
After 8000k you really start to lose output. That's why we only carry up to 8000k.
If you want your HIDs to match an LED white color chose a 6000k.
4300K is straight white.

Ok good thing I chose the 6k.
How are the 6k in comparison to the stock 04 hid headlights?
The stock setup is really nice and bright and I don't want to loose the light output.
