    Hi Guys,

    It may sound a tad obvious but my passenger side Xenon headlight is not working and therefore the dashboard light is aluminated identifying that there is a fault. It's been playing up for a while...sometimes coming on, sometimes it doesn't. Is it likely that it just requires a new bulb or may it be something else such as the ballast unit could be faulty? I suppose i should buy a new bulb and take it from there? Any suggestions? How much are these bulbs generally?

    Cheers

    Ian

    It sounds more like a faulty connection to me

    These bulbs are stupidly expensive. IIRC they are around £150 from the dealers.
    I hate to say it, but I would have a word with them before parting with that amount of cash...
