Replacing Xenons

I have a 2006 325i and one of my xenon headlights went out. Where's a good place to get stock replacement bulbs for a good deal?

pretty easy, you have to go through the wheel well/fender lining area though

I would assume it's the H11.....it's been a while since I changed mine.

I believe it is the D1S, can anyone confirm? My xenon light went to a purple-ish color before it went out completely, so I would just need to replace the bulb?

D1S. You will want to go with 4100-5000k for OEM-like color or 6000k for a crisper white. 8000k+ is just blue for show and you get worse light output.

You should change both bulbs and you dont have to go through the wheel well/fender lining area.
