Hope you took safety precautions when handling the bulbs, xenons are very expensive to replace. Due to high voltages there is a danger of damaging the starter/ballast units !
Thanks for the reply SportTourer, yes i did make sure i only handled the cap of the bulb and not the glass(electrician to trade), had a headlight out but had to check if it was the bulb or the starter, my luck it was the starter/ballast but bought a replacement which was the newer 3 part unit and the only problem was the starter connecting to the bulb which is bigger than the original, "made it fit", working ok but now need to find a newer type headlight .
