    I've replaced the OEM H8 bulbs with MTEC H8 35w Super Whites. Simple bulb replacement, no error codes. It was a bit difficult trying to get the bulbs in and out of the housing, due to the very limited amount of room! I tried not to touch the bulb glass itself, but in the end, I had no choice! :(

    £9.99 for the bulb (MTEC H8 35w Super White HID class xenon gas bulbs) from Ebay (seller: hids-direct)
    £2.99 - shipping

    OEM:

    Looks a million times better! they 5000k?

    You could have touched the bulb with rubber grease free gloves on... its just the grease on your finger can create hot spots on the bulb leading to premature failiure..
