Hey guys,

So I just got back in the country and was driving my audi. I was going around a curve and my right side headlight went out.
I got another HID put in there and it still doesnt work. I called an Audi dealership and they said that ill be looking for $350 fix!
Help guys!!!

well the bulb only cost like 90-130 .. depending which auto parts store you go to.. so if the issue is just the bulb than im sure you can do that yourself.

thats if its a OE HID bulb if it is aftermarket find your source and just buy a new bulb that way

Try swaping the good HID bulb over to your bad side before you change out the ballast. And check all of your headlight harness for loose connections. You can go with aftermarket bulbs if you want to cut cost. Since OEM HID bulbs are not cheap from the dealer.

I tried to replace the bulb and even took it to my local tuning shop. They looked at it and tried to replace it but they said is was something other than the bulb.
