    A Philips 9006 is NOT an HID xenon. Perhaps the previous owner removed the HID kit before selling it? Can you trace the wiring to a HID ballast (black box) that is spliced into the factory wiring?

    So we need more information -

    Actual HID units will last about forever, so I wonder what burned out? There isn't so much a bulb in a real HID as a unit with wires that run back to a cigarette pack sized ballast that would be zip tied in place.

    If you don't have this, you have a Halogen bulb. If you do have this, replacing the entire thing is probably a $40 exercise. Try DDM Tuning.
