You can try PIAA Super Plasmas (I've forgotten the exact name but it'* Plasma something) which are supposed to be the closest to HID I've seen. A company called Solaris also makes some nice bulbs, you can check them out at autosupermart.com.....I know you are after the looks but don't go too blue. Blue light scatters the most and as a result bulbs that have a blue tint are actually more dim at night than regular halogen bulbs. Just a FYI.

To follow up on that blue tint that Cfoote mentions, I've heard a few saying that certain shades of the light colors make it difficult to see in a snow storm because the light will reflect back off the snowflakes.
