Do you have OEM xenons, or did you install a HID kit? And is it the bulb that's out, or the ballast?

Xenon and HID are the same if I remember correctly, just a different way to say it. 6 to one, a half dozen to the other.

Right. I was just trying to identify what he had, as OEM bulbs and ballasts would differ from aftermarket kits.

The stock Bi-Xenon are a little different than standard xenon/HID. They offer xenon light output for both high and low beam. We have a shade in front of the bulb while using low beam and the shade opens while using high beam and also a conventional hologen high beam for tons of light (the hologen also allows flashing your lights).
