Headlight bulb help!!!!

I have a 2008 BMW 135i. I recently got the low beam malfunction on my nav. So I finally figured out I need a D1S headlight bulb. I went to PepBoys and purchased a ?Champion D1S HID Headlight?. Unfortunately it is not nearly as bright as my other headlight. My other headlight also has a blueish tint to it which the Champion one doesn?t have. Now they?re different colors :/. What is the best and brightest headlight I can buy. I really need the help. Thank you!!

Do you know if the one you took out was OEM or aftermarket?

This might be a good time to go to a dealer for a BMW bulb.

I'm pretty sure the stock bulbs for my car were the yellow ones. I'm not sure but my bulbs are white now. The one I took out was a D1S bulb and I do know there are Lux H8 160 Angel eyes in the car. I'm confused as to which headlight I need and which is the brightest. Thank you.

So the LUX h8 is the rings of the light

the D1S is your low and high beam (Main head light)

Its recommended you replace both the D1S bulbs at the same time to avoid the colour mismatch

You need to replace the D1S bulb.

You can pick some up from https://www.powerbulbs.com
I personally use the OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited D1S (Twin)

A video i found which helped me was


It shows you how to swap out the bulb.
