    The actual OEM bulb is a W5W not a 194.

    Oh dayum, that's so sad. Guess it was bound to happen, but I'm not really ready for this.

    Can you tell I have 99,000 miles on my car?

    What does a set of those halo rings cost?
    I have the HID headlights...
    Do you replace the bulb or is it something different

    I think the blue looks a bit 'tunerish' doesn't suit the car. I do have a question. I'm sure it's been covered to death. I did some searches and find mixed results. Do you have to remove the front bumper to replace those peanut bulbs? Or can you access them by removing the airbox and fuse boxes?? I'm sorry if it's been covered. I just had the passenger side burned out and have been quoted $200 to replace it. Figured I'd try the forum for an answer. Thanks in advance.

    $200?!?! Spare me...yes, you can get to them by taking out those two items. Square door on the back side of each headlight assembly. I plan on teaching myself how to remove the bumper next weekend, will replace all but the D1S's while I'm in there.

    The peanut bulbs are accessed through that same door on the back of the headlight assembly? I took a quick look today and there appears to be another door on the side of the headlight...I figures maybe that one is the one I have to remove to the peanut bulb. I will try this tomorrow. I read some post that said to remove the square door on the back you can only access 3 out of the 4 bolts then you just pivot it and get your hand in to replace the bulbs.

    OK thanks. Really appreciate the info. Looks like it might be a fairly simple job. Can't believe they want $200 for this. They said it calls for 3.5hrs in labor. I guess I should wait till I'm done before talking....thanks again though.
