    Hi All,

    The wife has called me and told me she has a malfunction on her car.

    I'm pretty sure the car in question has Xenons, they are super white and provide excellent visability.

    Is the main head-light buld (dipped beam) easy enough to change and I just order them online on ebay or similar?

    PS, she is a worrier and wants the bulb changed yesterday!

    Your manual will have the information. H7 is halogen not xenon

    Someone told me that these bulbs are £90 each.

    They must have been pulling my leg right?

    From the dealer £90 is probably correct for each lamp, they will most likely be Osram's, possibly Phillips.
    I have E-bay ones in my car no problems at all.
