Default Headlight flickering? Probably simple..

I have a 2003 9-5 Aero and one or perhaps both of my headlights flicker sometimes, like semi-regularly I guess.. does this just mean it is time for new bulbs? If so where can I get a good deal on some pretty good ones? I want to keep it with WHITE Xenon bulbs, not the blue ones some people have..

Thanks ahead of time!

Get these. They are great, priced great, and they were delivered to my house in about 2 days.

They are the PERFECT color:

I got mine on ebay for around $120 for the pair. I would stick with Philips and 4300k is the stock color temp (which is a nice white color). But flickering is a sure sign that you need new bulbs.
