06 330i Zenon headlight turning orange!

Thread title says it all. My right Zenon headlith is suddenly projecting an orange/redd like light. Anybody know what that is? Is it dying?

Did a search with no results

Your Xenon light is heading south and the other will follow suit. I am not certain but think they are D1S bulbs. I would suggest checking your manual. Typically BMW sells these for 200 bucks each because they use Phillips 4300K bulbs which are the best in the industry.
You can source any quality bulb for replacement no need to pay 200 bucks each.
You can get new Phillips bulbs at TRS which is all about lighting or one of our vendors here.
Hope that helps...
