Question OEM HID Bulb Replacement Question

I have a 2001 325i with OEM HID's, one bulb burned out so I purchased and installed 6000k replacement D2S bulbs from DDM Tuning. However the light pattern is no where near as defined or bright as with the OEM bulbs. I know that a higher temperature (6000k instead of OEM 4300k) sacrifices a small amount of actual road illumination, but now the light spread just looks like Halogens except whiter.

Has anybody tried any other brands of D2S replacements and had better results, in other words a light spread or pattern as good or better than OEM?
