Camaross305's HID kit and replacement bulbs

Need some guidance here. I have Camaross305's HID halo kit, and one of the bulbs burnt out.

Anyone know what brand, make, model bulbs are used for this? Can someome suggest to me the bulbs I should buy to replace them? I currently have the 8000k bulbs, I just dont know what I need to ask for as a replacement.

I have contacted Camaross305, but havent heard back yet.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I would go to DDM tuning and buy a replacement set of bulbs.

You need a pair of new light bulbs in order to have matching color.

If its anything like the Alpine kit (which from what I've heard, it is) then you can just order a set of H11 bulbs from Jose(sonic tuning) he's a supporting vendor that sells a bunch of lighting stuff

I appreciate the input here, but what I am really asking is what type of bulbs should I be looking at?

H11?

H8?

I am just not sure what to ask for.

Just to settle the aragument...

Camaross305 got back to me, and it is in fact H8 bulbs that are used.

Just wondering if a brand like GP Thunders would work with this kit?

Just bought this car couple months ago... one of the rings burnt out and I'm not too sure what exactly I need to replace. My angel eyes start off green, then fade to a yellow. Can I use the h8 3000k bulb from DDM tuning?

Thanks in advance!
