Replacement bulb for parking light in 2003 996.

I have replaced the headlight bulbs on my 03 996 with Sylvania Silverstars. I plan to do so with the foglights, high beams, and turn signals. The parking light bulbs are not listed for replacement parts for a white/blue bulb, and they make the headlight look yellow. Anyone know of a replacement bulb for these to match the Silverstars?

All right, so I am going to reply to my own thread after having done a bit of research. The parking light bulb is the H6W, and is made in a blue/white bulb by Philips and also Hoen. I ordered the Philips BlueVision bulbs. This is to get rid of the yellow bulb that lights up the headlight, and to make it light up white.

I ordered the Philips Blue Vision bulbs at, and they offer free shipping and a free set of Blue Vision side marker bulbs (which look great with the clear side markers) with any order. I've ordered from them before--even though they're in the UK, they came in less than a week.

Now I need to find a good replacement for the additional high beam bulb that's at the bottom of the xenon headlight assembly, which is too yellowish. It a H11, and I can't find a Philips Blue Vision or PIAA equivalent anywhere. Anybody have any luck on this one?
