To confirm, do you have factory HID or aftermarket? If its a bulb issue, I would replace both so they match.

My driver side headlight turns off now and then. Either from startup or it turns off while driving.

I have factory HIDS so I just purchased the Toshiba D4s replacements. I am not sure how different they are from the Philips, but reviews say they are a little brighter... i'm okay with that since the driver side headlight aims lower anyways.... aslong they are the same colour.

Hope that solves the issue! Because one bulb is newer than the other there could still be a slight color difference.

If you want the lights to match up in terms of color than I would recommend replacing both. Have you checked to see if its a bulb or ballast issue?

I know this post is old, but just in case someone else comes back here...I had the same problem. First the drivers side headlight started working off and on...first time found about it-- got pulled over and given warning ticket. After a few months doing nothing it started going off more often and finally the right side started to do the same. After reading on the web, I decided the easiest thing to do was change the bulbs. I ordered two Philips D4S bulbs on Amazon for $50 each. I saw a Youtube video on replacing the bulbs in my IS250 and it was easy following the steps. PROBLEM SOLVED.
