Default Suggestions on "whitest" halogen bulbs

I've finally upgraded my foglights to projector HID's to match my aftermarket projector headlight housings. Now that everythings back together I noticed I have a blown low beam bulb. I need upgrade the bulbs anyway to match the new HID bulbs (4300K) as close as possible. My question are: what sized halogen bulbs fit in this new housing? I think they are H1's but not sure. I cant find silverstar ultras in H1 size. Do they make them? Are there any other brands that come close to the 4300K light spectrum without upgrading to HIDS?

Slightly different subject but does anyone know the proper way to "aim" HID bulbs in projector housings? I have heard of people not being happy with them until they are aimed to get rid of scattered beams. I love the look of mine but just want to make sure I'm getting the most out of them. Also, when I turn on the HIDs I get major radio static from factory stereo. The ballasts are mounted next to each foglight. How can I shield this noise from the system?

And Yes, pics with follow as soon as everything is working. Dont wanna show pics of "blown bulbs" ;(

These new headlight housings take a different sized bulb than stock. Instead of a single hi/low beam bulb, the new ones take separate bulbs. Im not sure on the size but I think they are H1's. They use a plug and play harness but split off to 2 separate bulbs with crimp on style connectors and a metal spring to hold them in. Im just looking to confirm before I order.

I already emailed the company I ordered the headlights from to check on their bulb sizes but no reply yet. I thought about upgrading everything to HID's (hi/low and fogs) but wanna keep the red and blue lights off my tail. So I want to try and stick with halogens for hi and low as close to the 4300K spectrum as possible to match my existing 4300K HID foglights. I cant find H1 silverstar ultras and would like to know about any other 4300K halogen brands.

Did you check all over the blown bulb to see if there are any numbers or letters that would indicate the size?
