2003 325I Bi-Xenon Problem Help
Today my drivers side headlight went out. It has a Bi-Xenon projector system that is OEM. I swapped the bulb from my passengther side and the light still didnt turn on. At first glance I noticed the driver's side bulb was burnt out, and went out searching for a new one.. thinking the ballst was fine. Indeed a waste of time, listening to dealerships telling me that is costs around 300-400for one bulb. I even went to an audi dealership, where I get things at cost, and my guy told me 260 for a D2S bulb after applicable taxes. Ironic isn't it.
Now here's where I need your help, where can I find an affordable solution to this problem? I believe I need a ballast and bulb, if I were to buy one that was aftermarket would the sensors trip, is a chinese replica ever worth attemping? And if so, where can I purchase these things?
Or.. should I buy one from a scrapped car or part out, knowingly accepting that it can burn out again in a short while?
