2000 E46 CI CAB.

My headlight burnt out. Where should I buy a new bulb? and what is the code name for the bulb? Should I but it at the bmw dealership? or is the a better upgrade?
Please advise.

HIDs or regular?

I think HIDs was an option right?

if its HID, you'll probably have to buy a pair of them, since HID's change colour over time.

Xenons were an option on 2000 models.

If you have halogens, it's an H7 bulb. The Osaram Silverstars are the best overall choice, but you won't find them locally. www.suvlights.com has them.

Yes they are xenon,

funny thing happen yesterday, they passenger ligth came back on, however it now looks like a regular haolgen light. So the driver side has xenon and the passenger doesnt.
