It was the xenon bulb that had gone, talking to the mechanic he said they get fewer ballast units fail now as they have improved the sealing around the connectors, so keeping the damp out.

I've just had this happen to me. Passenger side headlight was giving out pink light, got worse over a couple of days and then failed compeletly on me at the weekend.

Ive ordered two D2R bulbs from Hids4u.co.uk for 70 and got it booked into Renault to change both bulbs for me (at a very reasonable price of 42 ).

I know I could the bulb swap myself, but not very confident in doing this and dont wont to break anything in the process.....
