I like the color of the new LED's - like speedog said, bit of a warmer white.

I've noticed the provincial highways within Calgary (Deerfoot & Stoney) have not converted to LED yet. In some cases you can tell where the Provincial jurisdiction ends and the City's begins on the off ramps by the color of light from the street lamps.
4th Street NW in Calgary from 40th Avenue to McKnight Boulevard is warm LaeD on one side and sodium on the other side - I'll take the LED.

Sodium on left, LED on right.
