How to replace headlight HID bulb?

Hello,
I have 1 bad headlight bulb, do you know where I can buy it cheaper than dealer's price? they want to charge me for $180.00 for the bulb only.
Thank you for your times.
Regard,

Eric

I bought a set on eBay a few years ago for $90 and they were philips bulbs so I know they are good quality. I would recommend replacing both at the same time so you don't have color mismatch between the two and quality. D2R @ 4300K is factory specs. The is the user/store (akinaboy) I bought mine from and they are listed for under $90 shipped for a set...

Go to ebay and search "D2R Philips" Buy a set for around $80 bucks and next time you are by the dealership, flip em the bird....JK.

i did the same thing, got them on ebay for $75 a pair... make sure you get a name brand like Philips or Sylvania (spelling?), it's worth the extra money to get ones that wont break on ya in 6 months.
