I've found very cheap replacements on ebay, but not sure if i'd rather just do a 55w upgrade with a different system.

Here's the link for the ebay bulbs i've mentioned.

I'd rather do a 55watt upgrade. Which brand have you all tried and what did you pay and the best place to purchase.

Thanks in advance!

Be careful with cheap lights. you get what you pay for. Id probably spend a little more and go to a reputable company. I dont have these lights but I think theyre worth looking at if youre looking to purchase some.

Good luck with the upgrade, I would say be careful of a cheap system as well, but I don't think there is anything cheaper (at least quality-wise) other than what GM uses. If your vehicle is still under warranty I would go to them and have them replace/repair the failing parts. GM needs to up the standards on this stuff, call me crazy but there is no way an 07 or newer vehicle should have a failure in their HID system. I know nothing is perfect and if it's man made it can break. But my dad had a LS430 and never had a balllast fail or problems with the lighting. Every so often I see many escalades 07's (I'm assuming) with one projector on or one bright and one not so bright. You may want to check out the kits on this site if your vehicle is out of warranty. http://www.hidkitsxenonlights.com/cadillac-escalade-xenon-kits-lights-conversions-headlights-bulbs/

I found a pair of brand new Sylvanias I will be putting in this weekend. they're only $84 shipped. I'll let everyone know how it goes and a review on the lights.
