Fog Lights

I run driving lights mounted on top of the front fender with 12V 55W H3 bulbs.
They looked very white/blue compared to the stock LT headlight.
When I did the HID conversion, the opposite is now true.
Does anyone know if I would run into any problems if I changed to 12V H3 8000K 100W bulbs?
Don't want to cook anything!

8000k will be awfully blue. Are you sure you want to go that way?
You will be losing useful light and instead you'll get some bling light (more noticeable to your friendly patrolmen out there).
