  1. 08 Aero Xenon Bulb out. Recommendations?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've replaced bulbs on the 03-07 models and if they're xenon, they're D2S and I have found philips/osram replacements on ebay before that weren't crazy expensive however I'm not so sure about the 08+. They're D1S but does anyone know where I can get reputable bulbs that aren't some weird color?
  2. What is code B2575?

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I've got a Xenon headlight out, and the headlight warning lamp on my dash. I had my local mechanic pull the codes with a Tech2, and it returned B3410 and B2575. B3410 is the front level sensor, but what is B2575? And how is B2575 rectified? Thanks!
