Default Best HID replacement bulbs for 06 STi?

Recently replaced both ballasts on my 06 STi, and now, with oem/original bulbs, my lights are much too blue and the vision is definitely limited by this.

What have you guys been using as a replacement for bright / white HID low beams?

Thanks...

Depends what you want, you can replace with the same oem Philips 85122/85122+ or, spend more money and get the best Philips Xtreme Vision 85122XV which are more expensive however quite a bit brighter. The Osram bulbs lose light much faster than Philips although when fresh are on par for brightness (just a little less)

Though, being an 06 you should fully inspect your current projectors, they could have burnt bowls but more than likely are quite dirty (projector lenses) so you might replace or open them up and clean (at which point a retrofit might also be in order... slippery slope and all that )
