    Hi, the driver side headlamp has been flickering today before turning itself off. Once it fails, I switch the lights on and off and the lights return. Only for the same thing to happen later on! Having checked on the net it looks like the igniter for the hid light has failed. Can you tell me where I can source one other than eBay please..? Thanks very much! (2003)

    Have you tried Euro car parts? they are a forum vendor on here and offer a discount to BFUK members.

    Looks like the headlight igniter is to blame. Off to Woods tomorrow to pick up a new one...

    All fixed! Must recommend the services of MVT in Poole. Paul was a star, diagnosing the problem yesterday, getting the part sorted and fixed by lunchtime today. Really impressed with the service. Thanks
