Replacement MACH bulbs ?

One of my hid's turned purple the other day so i figure i should replace them. any low price recommendations ? i found these. and would you rather have stock 4300k or 6000k ? soley for the purpose of better light output not looks.

I like HIDs with 4300, they look like normal lights, only brighter. My $0.02.

When my bulbs go I'm gonna get them from here.... www.theretrofitsource.com/index.php?cPath=27
They have more color options too; The Phillips D2S is OEM btw.

Another vote for 4300K, I really don't like anything over 5K.

Moving too far away from 4300K in either direction will reduce light output, so just stick with stock.

I've been debating picking up a set of the Osram Xenarc 66240 CBI's when my tax return comes in. They are a little pricey (~185 a pair) but the reviews over at hidplanet.com say they are well worth it.

i saw those , theyre nice. but i ordered the morimoto 3fives. hopefully they will be ok.

atleast there not the 12.99 with free shipping d2S bulbs on ebay. i cant imagine those would last but a few days.
