Costs all covered as I have extended warrenty to 100,000 miles with Harmony cover.

Glad your making progress on this, as to the failures ... I've had 2 ballast units in my Espace IV (2004) so I'm not sure, but I have noticed that most of the Renault models on sale today only have conventional headlamps, with Xenons available as an option on everything except the top-of-the-range variants. Maybe its cost cutting or maybe they are fairly unreliable?

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
