    I assume aftermarket HID's as per your sig & image, this is the issue, you have to replace the wiper motor & remove the aftermarket kit or you'll get the problem again, buy some oem xenon's & fit & wont have the issue

    the thing is they have been in with a relay for the past year and have been working fine and had them in my beemer before and they never had a problem with them ...

    :sorry: realistically about £400ish for proper xenon's depending on the market. There is somebody on the forum selling a pair at the moment if you check the listings.
