not looking for fancy xenarcs CBI or expensive oem bulb. what's a good alternative out there besides those? looking to sell my car to open a coffee shop and $180 each for 2 bulbs is steep for me right now.

Phillips cool blue intense. Mine are still bright, white, and going strong for 3 years now.

Beware of cheap knockoffs.

I understand your situation. I had morinotos d1s then switched to the osram 5500k the $180 pair one. They are night and day and have a great color to match my LCI headlight angels.

Believe me they are super bright almost feels as if I have the full led package like on newer cars.

I ordered from retrofit source

These OSRAM CBIs are the last bulbs you'll ever need. I've had mine for a couple of years now and they're still super bright as well as pure white. I've also installed a second set of the same bulbs in my other vehicle. No complaints.

Good bulbs (Philips / Osram) will pay for themselves in the long run as the knock offs will fail sooner then later if not arrive DOA.

The Philips OEM replacements have been very popular lately as this car ages.
