    I'd hazard a guess at you needing a new bulb? They won't last forever.

    Sounds like a bulb. I had the same on mine. To make sure it is swap the bulbs from side to side. If the flickering moves then its the bulb

    Real pita to remove/refit aswell, so remove bumper to get headlights of the front for the best access as things can sometimes get broken & you dont want that on rather expensive headlights.

    Your bulb is on its way out.

    It is a pain to change the bulb but I managed to change both my bulbs without removing the bumper, was tricky but it can certainly be done on the bi-xenons.

    Yeah but lets be honest Robin, if you were new to it, would you risk without removing headlight altogether, I know my preferred route lol.
