I'm going to give the Morimoto XB's a try, I've heard some very good things about them for the price point.

Got the Osram CBI , was hoping for color to be closer to 6k , has definitely gotten a little more blue since install but definitely worth it and superior compared to stock.

Still have my CBIs around 6 years later. Still brighter than most other cars I see, though LED lights are on another level. I might give the new CBHs a try

Just ordered a set of Osram 66240 Nightbreakers to replace what is likely the stock bulbs. 4200k is the perfect temp for visible light output, and they appear to have the highest lumens of the Osram lineup. We shall see.

TRS(The Retrofit Source). So many knock off bulbs out there that they are pretty much the only source other than Candlepower these days.

Cool was already on there with the bulbs in my basket ready to go. Night breakers for the M3 if you say they are the strongest.
