W212 which xenon bulb??

One of my xenon bulbs is starting to go pinkish so looking to replace the pair. Which ones are as close to oem as possible osram or Phillips? And what colour temperature are the oem bulbs 4100k or 4300k?

Obviously getting them for merc is ridiculously expensive so not going down that route!

Why not the cheap one from eBay. They work good and you cannot feel the difference

Thanks I'm torn between the osram standard bulbs and the osram night breakers. Took mine out today and it's a standard osram.
