Default Both dip beams not working

Hi all, went out this morning and neither of my dip beams are working, I've checked the manual and there doesn't seem to be a fuse for them, only for the LSM. Any ideas?

Always check/change the bulbs first.

Only changed them both a month ago. If it is the bulbs it will be the last set of nightbreakers I buy.

There are no fuses for the headlamps. It's all under solid state control in the LSM. Somewhere on the checklist for two concurrent failures of headlamp bulbs is a chafed wiring harness. Driver side near screen wash reservoir (front bumper off).

I'll pop the bumper off in the morning and check that at the same time as I check/change the bulbs.
thanks

After reading all the hype around Osram Nightbreakers I bought a pair (from ECP, few years ago mind) and aside from not being any different to the bog standard ones that were already in, they literally only lasted a few weeks and both went at the same time.
Absolute dog muck. The most over rated rubbish going. At the time I replaced them with Halfords own 150% brighter which had just come out, and they were still on for two years up to me selling the car.

Well I popped the bumper off this morning and lo & behold both bulbs were blown, slipped into town and got a pair of Ring bulbs which are claimed to be 100% brighter than standard bulbs. At £26 a pair they should be.
