BMW replaces Xenon Bulbs free under warranty?

One of my Xenon is turning Purple and flickers sometimes. It's more embarrassing than my super squeaky brakes.

Does BMW replaces bulbs for free with/in the first 4 years/under warranty? This is a mid 09 car. Plz advise. If they won't then I'll just quickly buy one myself and replace it instead of waiting for those weeks long apptments. Plz advise. Thx!

With HID lights, I find it is about a 50/50 chance it is the bulb. The other 50% is the igniter. Any condensation in the headlights?

Key is, if I can root cause this by swapping sides on the bulbs, does BMW cover this as part of the 4 years maintenance or is this considered wear and tear?

I had a pink then failed Xenon bulb replaced on my Z4M under warranty, just before the 4 year warranty expiry.

Yeah. I got a super quick appointment and have BMW replace this for free. Premature death has to be under warranty anyways. Thx all!
