Replacement HID bulb - where to buy?

I need to buy a replacement H3 HID bulb for my CQlight setup and I figured I would also order spares for the high and low beam. Where is everyone buying replacement bulbs. $35 at CQlight which seems like a lot considering the Ebay source Andy pointed out a couple of weeks ago where I can get an entire car kit for $65 which includes, 2 bulbs, 2 ballasts, etc.

Maybe I should just purchase a couple of those kits?

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: Replacement HID bulb - where to buy?

I don't know about other sources, but I just bought a replacement (and a spare) from CQ Lights. Arrived in 2-3 days, as promised.

Be sure to get the wiring harness adapter if you have the older style HID wiring. I just went through that scenario. My CQ Lights HID assembly is only 2 years old but they have apparently changed connectors.

Re: Replacement HID bulb - where to buy?

Janet at Autolamps-online.com [[email protected]] has complete kits made for the LT and they are great with support. They are in the UK but handle everything easily. Probably not the cheapest, but their kits fit the LT perfectly - and the instructions are in ENGLISH! My 4 year old HID low beam exploded for some reason - as we started it up to pull into a shop for a 48K service! She just sent me a replacement bulb - now I'm trying the contortionist excercise to get the *&*#^ thing clipped back in. BMW does NOT make working on these bikes easy, but at least we don't have to own a trailer to ride them . . .

We sell replacement bulbs as well. We carry both Japanese replacement bulbs and Philips (German made) rebased replacement bulbs.
