The best way to find out is to swap the bulbs from one side to the other. If the problem switches sides, then your problem would be the bulb.

I had some problems with my HID before similar to yours and it turned out that some water had seeped into the actual computer module on the bottom half of the headlight right under the housing and corroded the connecter ends...I hope that you don't have the same issue because that computer module is costly to replace.

i had the exact same problem but not as serious... i had erosion on my ballast i believe. Too long ago to remember. Luckily if your still under warranty let Lexus take care of it. Going to be costly like what Rocal said
