Hey guys,

So I recently ordered from Subispeed the below items and turns out that they don't match color at all.
1. OLM HID 5000K
2. Morimoto boomerang LED light bulb
3. OLM LED lite FOG Light MOAB

Anyone know how I can fix this? I'm using the OLM LED without any filters (stickers). Will changing the low beam to 6000K help? Also, does Amazon sell any bulbs that I can replace the OLM bulb with that has a good cutoff? I sent a message to Subispeed but they usually take a few days to respond and I don't know if they are going to help me with this.

Any help will be greatly appreciated in advance!

EDIT: forgot to mention that the Morimoto LED C light and the OLM LED lite fog lights seem to match color.
EDIT again: My car is a Subaru WRX 2017 Premium

Led and hid lights will almost never match color even at the same temperature.

I can't say for sure.

Well we need to know what the below look like first... are they on the more "blueish" side, yellow or white?

Do 6000k on the low beams to make them more white/blue like your c-lights.
But how? Subispeed customer service is absolutely horrific. I need to find bulbs on amazon that fit the OLM HID kit from subispeed. And I also need to find bulbs that have a good cutoff...

I think it's an LED lighting vs HID lighting.

Like XJ said, they're probably never going to be an exact match even at the same temp. Close, but it'll still be off I think
