    High beam headlight question

    With the headlights set to auto, and the stalk pushed away, the high beam icon with the 'A' lights up on the dash to show that the car is deciding when to turn high beam on. But can anyone confirm that it will only turn on high beam if you're doing more than 30mph? This seems to be the case...

    W211 Xenon n/s low beam

    Hi Just noticed the nearside low beam is out on my w211 e220 cdi. The offside is fine. Should I just buy a replacement bulb or is there likely to be something else wrong here? Can anyone tell me what type of bulb is required? It is an HID Xenon I think. Any help appreciated cheers.
