HID bulb identification?

These came with the bumper I bought, anybody have a good idea of what color temp or whatever you call that they are? I want to order a matching set for the head lights. I looked at them, but didn't see any markings anywhere with it on them. I will post a night pic to get a better idea. thanks in advance.

35w. does the 55w make much of a difference in head lights? Its only a 20$ difference

This type of bulb is found on a factory equipped HID vehicle utilizing a reflector for itís light output & control. While this may be DOT approved it does not provide the precise control & output of an HID projector unit.
