xenon headlight problem

I just noticed after turning on my low beam xenons that the driver side headlight appears almost regular halogen while my passenger side appears xenon. Any ideas?

Someone replaced one of your bulbs (you should always be replacing the bulbs in pairs for the colour to match).

I bought the car used, didn't check close enough. I assume the passenger side is the original xenon, what is the part number I have to buy. I assume I can only buy it in pairs.

You can get aftermarket bulbs from our sponsors. I'm currently running 6000K in my OEM housing.

It's a lot cheaper than the dealer

order a set of 4300Ks (if you want OEM look) for about 40 bucks and replace it yourself. You can also get the more whiter color output for the same price if you decide to go with 6000 or 8000 Ks. ebay deals are awesome for something like this.
