    Make sure to read the reviews on Amazon

    for the Sylvania bulb. Say it is oem.

    It's a Phillips name brand bulb. You needn't

    worry about that quality.

    Autohaus is reliable


    Sylvania is fine too

    Re: Are you asking because the light given

    From the dealer the bulb is $308....geez...
    im looking at the crevier wholesale parts counter and hoping for 200?

    ive seen them online for around 80 but not too sure i trust it to be oem.

    Are you asking because the light given

    out by an aged bulb might appear different than a new one? If that's the case I'd say it's your call. Personally I'd just replace one and see how it goes. And then not be too fussy if the difference wasn't too great.
    Maybe the price for a brand name bulb has gone up drastically since the last time I checked online, but isn't $200 a bit on the high side?
    Let us know how it goes?

    xenon bulbs

    one of my xenon bulbs is out, actually its....... broken?
    do you think i need to replace both? the drivers side one is still nice and blue....maybe just a fluke it broke? hate to replace both as they are 200 each wholesale?? or would you guys get two replacements online for 80 each and do both....anyone with experience on this?
