Headlight just went out, looking for replacement

So my driver side headlight bulb just went dark, it turned pink first and is now completely dead.

I don't want to replace with stock, in my opinion the light from the stock bulbs is barely noticeable, sometimes I even had to double check my lights are on because the cone in front of the car was barely noticeable.

What are some good replacement bulbs to go for?

Can I replace with any D1S bulbs? Anything I need to look out for?

Thanks

//Edit: Oh yeah, this is for xenon headlights.

I tried Bms d1s bulbs which were defected, causing me at first to think that my ballast was faulty. After swapping bulbs, realized it wasn't the case, returned the Bms bulbs, ordered a Ziza bulb from ecs, and it worked fine.
