Question Lowbeam Malfunction

Got a left lowbeam malfunction, assuming its just the bulb that needs to be replaced. Anyone had this happen before? Do I need to replace both sides at the same time or is just one side ok?

Can someone confirm that this is the correct bulb to get?

I have an '08 E90 with Xenon headlights.

Might be your bulb but it could very well be the headlight ballast

I would just replace both at the same time I I was you. As Andy said, the difference in age/use will show through difference in color (tho minor) but who knows if the other one is about to go out too or not.

That's what I saw when I did a search too, hopefully that's not the case!
