I was looking at a 2004 330CI in a non-BMW dealership which I spotted had an intermittent fault on the N/S front light cluster. At times the parking light would not work but indicator light stayed on (not flashing).
They rang me today to tell me that the problem was a faulty filament in the parking bulb and when the parking light fails the indicator bulb is designed to light up to so that there is a light on at the corner rather than a dark corner.
This sounds like a fishy tale to me ... but I thought that I'd ask someone with more knowledge than me ... any information / feedback would be much appreciated.
Can someone please confirm that this is utter cr*p .. thanks
