Replacement Low Beams 2013 Sti

So my one headlight turned pink last night which means its gonna die soon so I figured I would just buy the same stock bulb. I called our local Subaru dealer and the guy told me it was 194$ per bulb. I mean I've heard of some crazy numbers but 194$ per bulb about takes the cake. So I wanna get some aftermarket ones instead for cheaper and was curious if anyone had any good sites or reviews. Much appreciated.

I assume they are hid? If so you'll likely have to buy aftermarket ones in pairs so you don't have two colored bulbs

Yes they are HID and yeah gonna have to be a pair. I'd rather not pay 400$ for just headlights.
Found some Kensun 8000k D2S bulbs for about 50$ gonna try them out as direct replacement. I've heard nothing but good things from them.
Might I suggest the Osram Xenarc 66240 CBI. They are a 5500k bulb with the lumen/brightness of a 4300k bulb. They look amazing at night and also match the look of LED very well. They are a bit pricy ($150/pair) but they are well worth it. Many OEMs use the non-CBI version as stock HID bulbs, including Subaru. The quality is among the best out there.

They may not last terribly long, but they are only $40 for the pair.
Yeah I went with one similar to this but kensung. Too bad on the Phillips it doesn't tell you kelvin but im guessing its 5k-6k. somewhere near white. we will see how long these kensung ones last. I put in a Sylvania until the other ones come in and the color is of course different from the stock one but not by much.
