intensepower.com has both the 6000k and the 9000k

sounddomain.com has the 6000k i know and they might have the 9000k as well thumbsup

burning out in less than a year is not as uncommon as you might think...sometimes they are banged around a lot in shipping, packing, etc. (hid's are more sensitive to vibration.)

he got it installed from some local auto store, but yea they still get it shipped from somewhere. so r you saying that if i get the bulbs theres a lot of chance their gonna burn out again? as long as i get the kit though thumbsup

Try doing a search on ebay, and see if anyone is selling 9000k bulbs. BUT before you do that make sure it is just your bulb that burned out, not the bulb ballasts. Try putting the good bulb in, and see if it works thumbsup

A note about HID bulbs. They tend to have color shift. The color temperature changes higher with usage. If you only replace one bulb, the color maybe different. This is why it is recommended that you replace both bulbs at the same time.

I have never dealt with these guys before. But, I know a few people on the board that have. They do sell replacement bulbs in single or a pair. $85 each. YIKES.
