Default Corner bulbs that match headlight color?

I have clear corners on my '01 RS, but the bulb looks yellow in comparison to the color of the headlights. I want to get some PIAA 168 bulbs that are the same color as the headlights (whiter). PIAA has a bajillion different colors though. Which of the following is closest to the stock headlight color:

PIAA Extreme White
PIAA Super White
PIAA Platinum Super White
PIAA Super Plasma
PIAA Plasma Blue

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

You should really consider putting an orange bulb in there. Aside from legal requirements, it's safer to have some orange in that region -- makes it easier for other drivers to see you and where you're headed when it's dark.

i had some polarg hyperwhites in there for the longest time, they match really well.....

although after getting some yellowstars in the fogs, i decided to go for all contracts and matched the side marker, corner lights, and blinkers all the a real nice amber...the contrast is cool and different in a world of ricers with a lot of mismatching hyperwhite bulbs everywhere

Orange eh? Hmmm, I'll think about it, I'll have to see what it looks like. BUT, if I were to go with white bulbs, which would match the best?

After messing around with different brands I think that PIAA has the best 'fluidity' from one bulb size to the next...meaning that if you go with Super or Xtreme whites in one location (9007) and then then go with the same type in the wedge bulb (168) you will get constant color. I have the Xtreme whites in the headlights, and the Super whites in the fog/driving lights. The headlights are a bit britter of course, but the color is the same from top to bottom...so nothing looks out of place. I am waiting on my 168 wedge bulbs to finish off the look ( I got some 'white' wedge bulbs in there now...but they are as blue as they come...they look silly). There is no yellow tint in any of my lights at all now, and the visibility difference is awesome too.

TTStuff.com is where I ordered mine, cheapest I could find with reasonable shipping...

Hope that helps.
