    I dont think it will take a normal bulb.
    Your best place to go is ebay - a friend was in the same situation with his Volvo - the dealers wanted £90 for a Phillips bulb.
    We went on ebay and got a pair for less than £20 - they have been in for over a year and work perfectly.

    Nope, you can't put in normal bulbs to get you by. Check out www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/ , prices are good and they have replament HID bulbs although sadly £100 is not far of the mark. Use the car checker and the site gives you full details for every bulb on you car.

    I have just bought a full replacment set for my B6 S4 and upgraded a couple at the same time.
