Question 2012 135i lo and hi bulb replacement

Hi, I have a 2012 135i M package.
I feel the lights have always been very dim.
I do a lot of night highway driving so I would like them to be very bright.
I have struck out right and left with getting a shop to help me with this.
Somebody suggested 6000k but im having a hard time finding the right ones to fit the connections.
I believe the 2012 is different than the other years possibly which makes it so I can't just use any year 135 bulb.
I have attached some photos.
I would appreciate any suggestions.

Osram nightbreaker D1S for lows/highs
PIAA H8 for your rings

Max light output is 4200k and I wouldn't go above 5500 if you want usable light. 6k+ is just glare.

Polish your headlight assembly covers too.

I don't think your bulbs are specific/special to 2012 Model year only.

Any suspension work? Possibly the auto leveling system is being weird, and/or you need to re-adjust the aim?
