One white one yellow
 
Hey everyone

So recently replaced my headlight control unit and found the xenon bulb was damaged so I replaced it with one from the dealer . Noticing this evening that the replaced bulb burns more yellowish. Any thoughts on this? Should I go back and change the bulb or change the ignitor?ballast?

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Bulbs change color as they age which is why most people change both bulbs at once.

I don't want to know what you paid at the dealer. You can get a pair of Philips D2S for $60 online. Check out this thread.

Well both bulbs are in the they look good, I was also able to return the OEM bulb from the stealership, How you ask?!?!?! Well it doesn't hurt to show on Dec 31st at 4:59pm (when part dept closes at 5pm) and pretend you're in a rush

What bulbs did you go with?

I ended up going with the Phillips 6000K bulbs. I ordered them for Umnitza for $80 with shipping included
