I have a blown HID car lamp bulb, where do people get their replacements from nowadays?

 

Thanks

Just throwing it out there - is your setup compatible with an LED array?

I got mine from ebay, but they took a few weeks to arrive. Otherwise, Repco or Super Cheap Auto as otherwise your car is off the road after dark until you get a replacement.

Repco have their own range as well as Narva branded ones, both of which I sold a few of and never had any issues with.

They also seem to be having a 30% off online coupon promo ending midnight tonight, which considering they start at ~$100 should help a bit.

Regardless, if you haven't already, you will need to whip one out to see what type it is.

I bought replacement HID bulb for Toyota Estimata from supercheap to sadly find the builb was fine. Turns out the ballast was gone. Bought 2nd hand headlight unit.

Hmm. My light turns on but it only glows and not shine. Is that a ballast or bulb problem?
