    Hi all, I have a 1998 535i fitted with the facelift 2001 on angel eye headlights.

    The wiring to them (done by previous owner) doesn't look too clever, and one of the inverters appears to have burnt out, it looks 'swollen' and has obviously had a lot of heat through it.

    does anyone know the correct value for the inverters to be used with the stock BMW angel eye halo rings? lots listed on ebay but with differing values.

    and can I just use the original parking light wire to trigger the angel eye halos via the inverters when the park/side lights are switched on? currently I only get tail lights at position one!

    The electric levelling headlights don't appear to be working either so any advice on either of the above issues would be really appreciated!

    Are they original BMW units?

    Some after market ones don't have the leveling motors fitted, you have to swap over from the old unit.
