    Need replacement xenon/HID headlight bulbs

    My headlight bulbs for my '02 9-5 Aero are on their way out and I'm looking to replace them. So far I have found a few options and have been trying to stay away from the eBay and Amazon knockoffs as they are much cheaper. Other than direct OEM from sites like eSaabParts.com and eEuroparts.com, what are some other options?

    There are these Bosch headlight bulbs from eEuroparts that are half the price of OEM: https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/866...4300K-D1S-D1S/
    Does anyone have any info on these? Are they good for half the price?

    eEuroparts also has OEM bulbs that are exact to what I currently have in my car: https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/163...-D1S-32016323/
    I just was looking for a slightly cheaper alternative than $100 a bulb.

    I'd most likely buy them as a pair and just replace both at once so I don't have a headlight that's brighter than the other.

    Anyone who has any helpful info let me know! Thanks!

    Thank you! I did see the first of those two threads already, I was just curious since it was from 2012 if there were any real updates on it.

    Hi there, I've installed some Osram Xenarc Nightbreaker Laser D1S bulbs (66140XNL) in my M09. Had them in about 7 months now, like them fine and no issues. Purchased from HID Concept for abit less than $150 for the pair, and were verified as authentic once received.
