Unhappy External Bulb Failure - Help!

Hi Bimmerfest,

A warning indicator came up yesterday stating that the bulb of my car's exterior lighting system has failed.

I have a 2008 BMW 128i and installed installed my Alpine V3s in August 2011. This is actually the first time that this warning came up. I did a quick all-around check and my car's lights seem to be working fine. The headlights turn on, the angel eyes are fine, the rear light LEDs light up, and license plate lights are fine.

I really can't figure out what is wrong. Is it a loose bulb? Is it something overheating? Something wrong with the wires for the Alpines?

Any help would be appreciated.
