    my 2013 p85 with tech package has the xenon headlights but my drivers side one keeps going out. I can turn it back on by turning the headlights off and on again but I have to do this like every few minutes.

    I don’t think it’s a loose wire. Could be. No idea. But let’s assume it’s not. Is there a replacement bulb for this or do I have to buy a whole new headlamp? Anybody know or have to do this ? It’s not the old non tech halogens and not the new LED headlamps, it’s the xenon lights I have which were prob on the 2013-2015ish cars. I can’t seem to find any good reliable info on how to fix this or like a bulb I can buy to replace it.

    Standard D3S HID bulb. Fairly easy to replace. A little annoying since you have to peel back the wheel well liner, but certainly not difficult. Good DIY vids on YouTube...
