    Head lights not matching colourwise

    After messing around trying to get my lamp washer jets to sit back down . Ive noticed that one of the HID bulbs is slightly pinker than the other, I bought and fitted a replacement from audi around a year ago but never noticed this diffrence before.
    Could it be the temperature outside? Will it even out once the bulb warms up slightly?
    Failing this where can i get a pair of white HID bulbs... ive heard some are pink and im not a fan. White or slightly blue is what im after
