Default Daytime Running light bulbs

The daytime running lights on my 2006 Accord are yellowish orange. I've been told that the car is Canadian built because the US models do not have the lights on.

Anyway, the daytime bulbs that light are actually the high beams, but at a lower current thus producing less light. I would like to replace the daytime running bulbs to a blueish white color, to blend more with the HID low beams I installed.

Anyone know where I can find bulbs like that?

You won't find any bulbs that will be whiter in DRL "mode". The lower voltage of the DRL's cause the bulb to glow orange, just like an incandescent bulb on a dimmer. So even the white high wattage halogens that are a little white, will be orange when the DRL's are on. If you don't want DRL's just pull the DRL fuse and live with the DRL dummy light on the dash. This is the A/V forum, this question should be in the appearance section.
