Osram addresses this in their technical information. I would definitely go straight to them with your question.

I chased down 6 links to that reference and none of them even say it HAS a capacitor. If you want to know about the capacitor you will have to put up a better link.

for the price, you can buy the whole kit, which contains transformer and cap. Your transformer may be compromised. Make sure your using the correct bulb, and double check that you're hooked up to the right transformer tap for the voltage.
