Default Better Halogen Bulb?

I have a 2014 Black Edition Express with the stock projector-style headlights.

Ok, so I ordered an HID kit, but then decided I didn't want to go that route after all. I've been trying to find a brighter bulb that I could put in instead. After researching through the numerous threads on this forum on this subject I discovered the size I'm looking for is 9012. Is that correct?

Assuming it is, I contacted PIAA and inquired about their Xtreme White Plus bulbs. They said they don't make any bulb in that size.

My questions are:

1- do I have the correct size?
2- who makes the best one since apparently my first choice was a bust?

Thanks
Josh

In Jeremy's HID drop-in kit, (Retro_Shop)
He uses 9006 bulbs with a small notch trimmed to fit.

See in this video, at about the 2:50 mark.




That's all it takes to fit in the 9012 socket from what I can see

No halogen bulb is brighter then 9012 HIR. So either get the HIDs or don't waste your money.
