[QUOTE=boramkiv;7175290]The Drivers side looks like the ONE bulb for the Corona Rings went out and the car defaulted back to a High beam bulb (reduced intensity).

What???? The car does not default to the high beam if the AE goes out. If you look at the pics, the DRL's are on in both pics. It just more obvious in the pic with the AE that's out. The OP needs to replace that AE bulb which can only be purchased at the dealer.

OP, if your car had Xenons, then the AE would take the H8 bulb. This is always listed in the reference books at the auto stores. They fail to list the correct bulb for the Halogen headlights. Nobody sells that bulb besides the dealer so don't waste your time in looking.
