Do they both not work ? Its unusual for them both to stop working at the same time.

If its not the bulbs, then it could and probably is the ballast (starter) units for the headlights. They are quite expensive, I was quoted 320 each from Renault.

However you can get them cheaper if you look online. For instance take a look at the link below

You ideally need to work out exactly what is wrong with the Xenons before replacing parts as it can get damn expensive.

If you know what you are doing (or know someone who does) then there is a how to on bumper removal on here somwhere..... Im thinking you might have a water build up on / in your ballast units that is stopping them working.
