Replacement HID bulbs

My GTV has a HID conversion kit fitted by a previous owner, I had to replace the bulbs because they started flickering and sometimes failing to come on almost a year ago so ordered some up on ebay, and now the same thing is happening again. I've been trying to find some good quality replacement HID bulbs that will last but so far not found any that will fit 9005 aka HB3, anyone spotted any eg Philips or Osram?

Could be the ballasts rather than the bulbs.

mmm, that had crossed my mind from what I can work out they give the bulb a blast of about 20kv to kick them into life then drop down to 85v and stay at that. When I get home I'll try to check the voltage after it's started it up with an old multimeter I don't mind poping
