Default 06 HID turned purple

I was driving my bosses 06 STI last night and all of a sudden, the passanger HID headlight turned to a purple color and very soft. the light till shines and all but we couldn't seem to figure out what is the matter. After turning everythng on and off several times, we came to the conclusion that we had no Idea what was causeing it. Also,the car just hit 37K so taking it in for warranty is unfortunately out of the question.

Please, i have searched the crap out of this to no avail, anyone ever have this happen, any easy fix?????

Thanks in advance

Kyle / Zak

Sounds like a bad bulb, you can confirm by swapping them side to side. Perhaps you can find a friendly dealer who will take care of it even though you're 1K past the warranty.

Yup, sounds like that bulb is about done... Swap bulbs with the othere side to make sure then order up another one. I don't know if the dealer will cover the buld, seems just like a "wear and tear" item.
