    I think there was a issue with some units letting in water in. Should be replaced under warranty.

    Do you get the AFL warning light on ? and are the turn lights working?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear, I meant the halogen turn lights. The ones that come on when you turn the wheel tight and put the indicators on.

    If one of them goes the fog light on the same side comes on.

    It's definitely the main xenon bulb? If it is you should get that replaced under warranty. HID Xenon's, as a rule, should last the life of the car.

    yep halogen turn lights come on

    i thought my driver side front fog light would come on, with the drivers side dip beam out, but the fog light didn't come on

    My main warranty has just ended but i still have the Network Q warranty untill june 2009 (i just hope that will cover it

    It's a bit of a mission to change the bulbs. I changed mine to 6000K bulbs. I lined them up on the garage door first and drew a line where the beam pattern was. You then need a willing helper to assist in taking the bumper off and then you have to take the entire headlight unit out. You can then undo the little door at the back 2 X torx T20

    The bulbs are D1S not D2S as with the pre-facelift and you can get them off ebay for about £30
