I have an ongoing issue with chilli's xenons Sad I was driving a couple of wkends ago & my passenger xenon started flickering during use. I didnt think anymore off it till i got my friend to look & saw that it wasnt working. We assumed it was the bulb that had gone!

Just got hold of a bulb today & that hasnt cured the problem Mad Sad Its defo not the bulb as tested in my other side & works fine, also tested my orginal bulb (that works) in my passenger & nothing. So thought we would go onto the fuses & there fine.

So any ideas/or anyone had an experince of the control units going/not functioning or wiring or any other ideas.

The mini is 7years old on hallowen & i have used the xenons at night a fair bit of the last 3 years.

I got my friend/mechanic going to take the whole headunit out nxt wk & test the connection on my working drivers side & take from there but he cant do b4 then Sad

Any further ideas/suggestions etc most gratefully received or if anyone has one poss 2 control units for sale let me know

Many Thanks
Dawn/Chilli xxxx

when I had my first S (2004), I had a similar problem with one of the xenons and it kept flickering. The dealer found a fault with the ignitor and they replaced it (under warranty), which fixed the fault - could be the same problem with yours Dawn Smile
