OEM is usually ~4300k for almost every car manufacturer because that provides the most light output.
Don't drop in HID bulbs into halogen reflectors/projectors. It's provides horrible lighting, the light scatters, and it's dangerous for you and everyone else on the road.
04/05 STI's have hid headlights bur utilize a reflector housing instead of projectors.
