Exclamation 1 bulb for 227! Seriously?!

So today I noticed that my driver's side dual xenon lamp is not working (I assume the bulb burnt out). I went on the parts.infinitiusa.com and the replacement bulb (1 bulb) costs $227!! Am I crazy or is that the normal price? Any suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks
Eddie

You should look on eBay or Amazon for name brand Osram / Phillips / Sylvania, etc bulbs. I bought a pair on eBay years ago for about $60. You should replace both bulbs together as the colors can change with age.

Glad this came up again, thanks to both of you.

It's been a while and one of these days, I'll be searching for posts from a few years ago when the topic was popping up more often.
The brand recognition and getting bulbs for less than half of OEM pricing while still good quality was the main concern because there were some poor choices when just shopping by price alone.

I met some prices are much crazier, so I guess that's right & just common for dual xenon lamp. Or just other brands.

Like Gilley mentions and others have shopped and purchased as well, those bulbs can be replaced with 1st quality name brands for much less than the retail MSRP or dealer pricing. If you are in the $100 plus per bulb range, you just haven't found the right sources or don't mind paying more money than other shoppers.

This bulb here is at Amazon for $95 a pair-

$40 for the pair here on the 6MT vendor list (and you get to pick the color temp of the bulbs)
