For new bulbs I`m thinking about Osram Xenarc Cool Blue D2s Intense 5000K. They schould be very good.
I hate it there is so much imitation philips and that kind of stuff...
i know this is kind of late in the thread but

GET THE OSRAM CBI's!!!!! i just got them in and they are so bright! samae stock 35w ballast and people actually ask me at the gas station what i'm running! (i'm talking like 55+ year old guys with stock, non-modded bmw's and audi's). just goes to show how bright they are. I don't know how osram increased light output with the same 35w input, but they are certainly brighter! deer light up like tin foil on a black background.

a user actually did a test with the 85122's and the cbi's actually threw 55% MORE light than the 85122's! it was something like 2700 lumens vs 4400 (arbitrary measurement, but the relative difference is what makes the reading)
