Need stock HID bulb for headlight

Hi guys,

I'm down in New Zealand and parts are very expensive in this corner of the world. I have an 05 3.2 GT and one of the headlight bulbs has gone out. The car has factory fitted HID or Zenon bulbs (sorry i cant tell the diff between the two types).

Can someone recommend a place where I can order these online for a good price?

They will be a std D2S HID bulb.
Same used in every projector lens HID.

If you want to keep a colour match, buy a pair.

Search for "D2S" and you should find something local.

45 each inc Delivery from

59/pair + Delivery from

Do you also know the type of transformer that powers the Xenon lamps?
My dealer replaced the lamp but told me that corrosion has caused another failure. They suggest replacing the whole lamp assembly at a massive cost, but digging around informed opinion suggests that the transformer needs to be replaced.

My original thread is located here :

Thanx in advance
