Best DS1 Xenon bulb recommendation

So, my passenger side xenon bulb is now pinkish/reddish and needs to be replaced. Question is what is the best bulb for the money? I've looked at replacing them before for better brightness but now I have a good excuse to...

Any opinions on these:

A bit pricey at $130 each but I want the best..

Thanks.

Yup, osram are the best.

Plenty of fakes out there tho...

I'd purchase from the retrofit source to be safe.

Post some pics when installed.

The $200 price at theretrofitsource is for 2 bulbs. OP's link is for a single.
