The headlight bulb on my 2015 DS4 Crossback has started flickering so I assume the bulb is on its way out.

Has anyone got any experience changing Xenon HID bulbs and can recommend what bulb and strength to use?

Looking around on the web and it looks like I need a D1S bulb, but they seem to be pretty expensive Shocked
This is what I've found on Amazon a lot cheaper and the reviews seem ok. Any thoughts?

I’t could also be the ballast / driver that your HID’s use or even dirty wiring contacts.
Swap the bulbs from the left headlight to the right headlight and see if the flickering moves. If it does, the bulb is failing.
Remember never touch the bulbs with your hands as it’ll shorten the bulb life. The oils in your skin can cause hot tracks on the glass surface of the bulbs.
