    Hi, I Bought my 320d m sport last sunday, The car is lovely but i have a problem with 1 headlight? It is about as bright as a side light? I have changed the bulb but this didnt help. There is light but just not very much. I have no idea how bulbs work but i would make a guess that the 2 wires connected to the back kind of ignite the bulb which makes is light up? If this is right could it be that 1 of the wires has a break in it?

    Hi, the headlights on a e90 are powered and controlled by the footwell module. These do play up. It would be worth getting this programmed with the latest software and recoded. This can bring them back to life.

    I would check if the FRM is outputting the correct voltage from the in built transistors first. Check the voltage at the wiring and then pins 6 and 38 on the FRM. Might need help from an auto electrician.

    The car has still got warranty so will have to get them to sort it out. I just wanted to get any idea as to what was wrong coz the guy at the garage said it was probably just the bulb. Hes ment to be calling me tomorrow to let me know when to take it in. Thanks for the replies
