LTB... Xenon D1S bulb in Canada$$??

Ok here the deal....stealer wants 340...part source wants 100 and is a Philips brand.
Anyone know if the Philips is comparable to BMW bulb.
Thoughts anyone??
This looks like a no brainer but wondering where fellow Canadians are sourcing quality bulbs without stealer premium!
TIA

Post this in the e90post Canada section. This is the off-topic section and not many Canadians read this.
But yeah, don't buy bulbs from the dealer!

I highly suggest you go for the Osram Cool Blue Intense (CBI) D1S bulbs. i've done my research and these seem to be the best bulbs for us vs. the Phillips Ultinon.

Contrary to its name, after 60 hrs of breaking in, they turn to a pure white 5200k-5500k color temp. which is a lot whiter than the stock OEM's.

Be wary, there are a lot of fake Osrams and Phillips out there.

Consider the correct price to be around $100-150/bulb. That's right, a piece.

Dont cheap out on headlight bulbs, because in the end, you get what you pay for.

Stick with the Osram/Phillips or if you want to save a bit, go with Morimoto 3Five. They're truly amazing. I've a pair in my E90 and I couldn't believe how much improved the output is compared to my 7 year old bulbs. Google the Morimoto bulbs, there's an extensive write up and test comparing them to the heavy hitters like CBI or axe arc.

I bought mine from ProLightz.ca.

Philips and Osram is best. don't go with anything else thats aftermarket. morimoto, and all those other random ones will prematurely wear your ballast.
