Where to buy HID Bulbs

So after 7 years, one of my bulbs bit the dust and now I'm needing to replace the pair with new ones. I've never owned HID headlights before so I want to see where people buy theirs. I've noticed that there are a TON of fakes floating around in eBay and I'm not sure what to trust.

I'm looking for either 5000K to 6000K as they seem to be the best range to use from what I gather in the internet. My car uses D2R and its an OEM HID system (low beams).

Philips or Osram/Sylvania seem to be what people are tending to buy. Are they available locally somewhere for a decent price?

Like this one, how can you tell if he is selling legit or fake, he seems to have a good rating but the price looks to low to be real http://www.ebay.ca/itm/130734081530?...#ht_841wt_1397

There are stores like this out there but without other people saying if they are a good seller or not, its really hard to plunk down that kind of dough Car Bulbs, Headlights, Xenon Bulbs | Philips & Osram | PowerBulbs

Any help would be great, I looked through the forum but there does not seem to be that much info on bulbs and more just aftermarket HID systems and also not much on where to buy. Many thanks.
