I'm in need of new Lights, Driver Side Headlight went out, figured i replace both so they match. I have yet to take it get examined, hopefully its just the bulb and not the entire module.

Hella bulbs are outrageously expensive, the OEM units are as well. (about 100 Dollars per bulb)

Any good non name brand bulbs? Reliable?

P.S For clarification, before the headlight died, the bulb started to turn a pinkish red color days before a fault warning came on and stopped working.

Osram/ Sylvannia Xenarc Silverstar bulbs are what you need. We can get them for £100 a set over here in the UK. I expect you'll be able to source them for $100 or so in the US.
If you buy cheap, you're likely to buy twice. $100 for a pair of bulbs that will last as long as the car does is a small price to pay I think you'll agree.

I will check for those. 100 dollars is fine for a pair. but all the mainstream companies are charging about a 100usd for a single bulb. That's outlandish.

Would you be cheaper picking up a used light over there?

The average shipping rate for anything from outside of us is about 30usd given the size of item. I really wouldn't save any cost buying the same thing from UK. There are plenty of cheap bulbs here, i just dont trust them. Unfortunately i am another guppy that likes expensive stuff
