At this point, with MOT looming, I needed some quick and cheap bulbs, not much time to wait for a gap in the service diary of the dealer!
I can get to the faulty bulb to change it, but not the O/s one, hence, I'm happy to spend the 27.99 before needing to take the bumper off.

Also noticed this morning, the headlight on indicator on the dashboard doesnt light either.... is this normal, (Renault quirks not withstanding! :-))

I will post my experiences on these bulbs. My reasoning is that as new technology becomes commonplace, the prices fall. Look at the price of computer bits. A decent Hard disk 10 years ago cost about 200. A very decent one today can be bought for 50. Supply and demand - high production to reduce costs.
