Lightbulb PIC request - "WHITE" parking lights

ok so like many of you i have cleared out my parking lights on my GC6.

i recently purchased the white 6 LED parking light from super bright leds.com . the problem is, its not really white. its more blueish in hue. i cant tell if i like these better than just regular yellowish bulbs that were already in there. i have silvania silverstars as my headlights and am happy with the output and color of those. not ricey at all. but the LEDs look kind of ricey. they dont match anything on the car so it kinda sucks.

does anyone have pictures of really WHITE parking lights? i know i saw some pics a few months back but cant find the thread in the search.

someone help me out. i hear the PIAAs are good but i cant seem to find a picture of what the look like when theyre actually ON.

tanks!

edit: i'll post a nite time pic tomorrow when i have my camera at home of what my setup looks like now.

If you can see this pix ... I am actually running the exact same 6 led parking light that you got from superbrightleds.com.

It seemed to work for mine though.

is it possible to just completely change the bulb type and harness in there to a bigger bulb that will give off more light? or is it possible to run a tiny bit more juice to the parking light to liven it up? the color from stock seems like when you have a flashlight that needs new batteries. it just looks like its dying. thanks for the link Hank.

do you know if the "white" version of the light is really white, and is it powerful enough to overcome the brownish tint on the corner lamp. I would really like to match the corner light to the HIDs that I have (4500k i think)

Yeah ... but if you check my lights, those are not even blue enough to match my other lights. However, they're the closest I can get, so they will do.
