What plug and play hi beam bulbs should I get for my 08?

I have the stock HID headlights. I'd like to replace the high beam bulb with something that complements the stock HID.

Any opinions on a good plug and play bulb?

I had silverstar in my previous vehicle, they worked fine for me, plug and play.

I thought HIR required different wiring, but I'd look at HIR if they are plug and play too.

almost plug and play. there is one good seller on ebay. his listing gives links. these are same wattage as OEM so no issues. But you do need to modify a tab on the bulb but it was rather simple. he gives details in the ebay listing for that too.
