I have a 330ci sport with xenon headlights. when i 1st switch the lights on they strike very brightly for a split second, then dim and then slowly get brighter. i take it this is a standard procedure for xenon lights?
the problem i have is when im driving with the lights on every so often they will randomly strike very brightly as if i ve just switched the lights on, but they have been on for a while, its annoying because they must instantly blind people coming from the other direction and then they flash me.
does this fault mean that the sriker units are on their way out? it looks as though it could be both lights doing it at the same time. if so can i change just the striker units or will i need to replace the whole headlight? could it be something else? has anyone else had this problem with their xenons?
any help would be very much appreciated
thank you in advance.
