Does anyone know what the actual color temperature is of the factory installed XENON bulbs?

I have halegon bulbs currently and am thinking about a HID conversion kit, but I want it to look like the factorty color.

I think they are 6000K (diamond white), but was hoping for confirmation.

I have searched and couldn't find this info.... I'm sure it is in the forum somewhere, I just couldnt locate exactly what I was looking for.

Any info would be greatly apprecited. Just got the car last week, newbie SAAB owner and I am loving it!! The Saab is amazing and I am enjoying the drive immensly!

I believe the factory is 4300K.

6000k is white but has a slight blue tint.
5000K is solid white.

Exactly right. Both Philips and Osram bulbs are used by Saab. I had one of each. Replaced with two Osrams.

I posted part #'s in a recent thread. Nothing unique about these bulbs. Both Philips and Osram readily available on ebay and elsewhere.
