CLA 180 Right Dipped Beam

Right Dipped Beam has just come up on my CLA 180 display and so i rang Mercedes as usual to find out the cost of replacement bulb. I was told the Bulb alone cost 153. Also i found out my car uses Xenon HID car headlight Bulb. This is a gas filled bulb and they are very expensive. To add insult to injury, I have been advised to replace both at the same time. Please any advise on cheaper alternative. Thanks

Please take a moment to visit the User Control Panel and update your profile to include your car model and year, and your location (at least country). This information will then appear below your name and avatar on the left side panel next to each post you make. This will greatly help others to give you better information. If you are using the mobile version of the site, you will need to switch to the "full" version to get to the User Control Panel.

Not all have Xenon/HID bulbs. It is an option. If you do have that option, your car uses a D3S bulb that you can probably find for less than dealer prices. If it's halogen, then it's an H7 and those are definitely much cheaper. As the bulbs age, their color and brightness changes so it is advised to replace them in pairs so they match.
