My X5's passenger side xenon bulb has turned pink, so I guess its time to replace it. Anyone have an idea of where to buy a replacement other than shelling out $170+ to a dealer?

Find out the type of bulb you need (best to just take it out of the car) and just google for it. I managed to find a guy on some Audi board who was selling his take-off HID bulbs. Another option is to get them from another manufacturer (e.g. Acura) for cheaper as they may also use the same bulb.

Try www.powerbulbs.com (http://www.powerbulbs.com). A great company in the UK - I have purchased from them for years. Fair prices, free & prompt shipping.

Go to eBay.

If you have a D2S bulb, you want a Phillips 85122+ (the "+" makes a difference). Takeoffs are fine and can be had for not much money.
