Default Best 6000k bulb replacement

Hi guys,

Need some recommendations on which 6000k bulbs to get for my '12 STi for:
1) low beam(H11 ?)
2) front fog lights( 9006 ? )
3) parker lights(LED ?)

p.s. The purpose is just aesthetic. i just want a pure white light, and not the standard yellow tinge.

Cheers,
Sam

If you're looking for pure white you should look at 5000k, above that you enter the blues which start taking away from true light output. STi's have hid headlights in them so if you go to theretrofitsource.com they have morimoto bulbs in different levels. Otherwise you're going to look all over the place and find for the most part either Philips rated at 4300k or crappy bulbs that won't last a month.
If you have a special edition STi with halogen lights, I can't remember which it is off the top of my head, then go to theretrofitsource.com and get a retrofit for your projectors so the lights actually look nice and crisp with a good cutoff.
For the parker lights I assume you meant the blinkers, they make leds which when on are silver/white, when flashing amber so they're legal. Just make sure you get a resistor because those lights use such low amounts of power it makes your car think a light is out. Also if you do a retrofit which requires opening up the headlight, sounds daunting but its not so hard, you can remove the little amber plastic to clear your headlights so you have a nice clean look to it.
For the foglights...honestly for all intents and purposes they're for looks and don't help visibility much so you could get away with just putting leds in there.
