    So I bought 2 new depo (yeah I know they're not OEM, but I've read that they're okay) facelift headlights for my coupe model because the old ones were bad. After installing them, I checked if the headlights move up and down. When the headlights are on 0 and I turn the wheel to 1, 2 (that wheel...

    Looking around the forum to find the best H7 bulb upgrade from the yellow OEM bulbs to something that will match my LED angel eye kit which is white/blue. Most of the threads about H7 are 3-4 years old and I just wanted to see what is the best & brightest on the market now? Thanks Simas

    Hi Guys, First post on here, so bare with me! I've recently bought a 2010 520d SE which came with the simply shocking halogens on it, which I decided to get rid of pretty ASAP. Lots of research later, I've now fitted a really quite good HID Xenon kit which had no errors or anything. A bit of a...

    Hi Guys I have a F30 with bog-standard halogen headlights, which are pretty bad on a country road at night. The lights on dipped must be about 40 yards max. and the normal yellow light. Is there anything out there with a simple LCD replacement bulb to improve beam strength, coloration and...

    Hi all, can anyone help. I have changed my h7s dipped and both didn't work. I've changed my offside back and it works, but still my drivers side is off even with it changed back. I bought some philips diamond to put in and they are doing the same. I thought Phillips would be error free. Could I...

    Hi guys I managed to drop the main headlight h7 bulb retaining clip down in the bumper area and can't see it or have any easy way of retrieving it so now I'm stuck with a loose light bulb. I don't think bmw sell these clips separately and eBay don't seem to have the correct type. If anyone...

    Just over a year ago we announced the addition of Osram and Philips bulbs to the ever growing list of products available at Engine Oil, Motor Oil and Car Engine Oils from the largest UK independent online supplier of Performance Oils. These have proved very popular so we thought we would extend...

    I am looking to change both the main & dip H7 bulbs in my E36 Vert which has projector headlamps. What are the best legal bulbs to use? The lenses are plastic so a bit concerned about these being damaged by hot bulbs. Do not want the expense of HID conversion.

    Hi all, Trying to replace my xenon hid h7 bulb. I have hit a stumbling block. There are four wires that go through a rubber bit (see pic attached) which then attaches on to the back of the rubber dome that covers where the bulb goes. On the picture you can see the bulb poking through the...

    Since they have now effectively done away with after market HID kits through the new MOT regulations. Does anyone know if it is legal and possible to get LEDs of the correct brightness in the H7 form for use as a low beam headlight ????
  16. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi, I recently acquired a '99 e 36 convertible and am somewhat confused by the headlight bulbs. The bulbs are listed in the handbook as h7's for both full and dip beam, so I ordered some suitable uprated bulbs. When I go to fit the bulbs, the ones in there presently are h1's (dip) and h1u's...
