If you're replacing bulbs, it's best to replace as a pair so they're the same colour temperature. Check TRS - The Retrofit Source - and buy your bulbs there. I believe they've got the Philips 85122 bulbs for $95/pair. Don't buy on eBay, or unknown Amazon sellers- 80+% of those are counterfeit Chinese bulbs - and they are crap.

^^ Don't replace one bulb. Replace both at the same time.
