    Hi Guys Since my last post about my rattling engine cover I have since discovered that one of the clips (rear drivers side) the rubber bush that the connection sits into appears to have torn away from the cover, so no matter how much I push and reposition it always reverts back to rattling...

    Hi guys, my 2006 E92 has xenon headlights which have recently started oscillating up and down. Fault code 9CB4 was present (rear ride height sensor) so I've changed the rear ride height sensor twice, firstly with a new Febi Bilstein part which made no difference, and secondly with a new BMW...

    Just realised that on my F10 the inners of the twin headlights does not actually light up other than the running lights. The outers do both dipped and main beam. Is this normal?

    Hi, I currently have an after market Xenon kit installed on my BMW 520d F11 (2011). The xenon spec is 6000k at 35W. The xenon are not producing enough light out put as I believe necessary, as cars with Halogen bulbs seem to be outshining my headlights every single time, which is frustrating...

    Hi, Here again. My 650 failed its MOT on Friday because one of the xenon headlights has lost the definition of its pattern. I have checked this - the left headlight throws a defined pattern with a clear horizontal line on dipped beam, while the right Headlight throws a wider light. They...

    Hi, im looking for brighter lights (mains and high beam) but not not sure which path to take....Do i go for the cheaper option and buy decent bulbs and if so what would people recommend?

    Hi Just bought a E92 and one of the xenon lights was not working short of replacing the bulb, ballast and control module is there any single way of finding out what the issue is? Also read that the only way to replace the bulb is removing the wheel and arch liner to remove. Thank you

    Hi, First post and hope I don`t seem foolish but....my 2015 420d M sport has twin xenon lights but I can`t see from the handbook when both will come on. The outers come on automatically in bad light/dark and the full beam seems to come from the outers too. When do the inner pair come on and is...

    Both Xenon headlights on my 2007 530d M sport have failed to come on. I doubt it is the bulbs as both failed exactly at the same time. I have checked fuses 5 and 6 in the glove box. Has anyone got any ideas please ?

    Hey Guys, First post and bit of an odd question I hope to find an answer for. I was searching the internet for quite a while but could not find a proper info on this. I bought my BMW 120d '09 (facelift) in mainland Europe as left hand drive. I have since moved to Ireland and in order to get...

    Hi everyone, I have just become the very happy owner of a 2010 E91 M Sport 320D, which has Xenon headlights, but halogen Angel-Eyes. As seems quite popular with BMW owners, I am looking at upgrading these halogen factory fitted bulbs to LED. However, I am baffled by all of the bulbs on the...

    I've just bought a ridiculously well specced 330d M-sport for a bargain price, it's just gone through an MOT without advisories and I plan to enjoy it for a while then sell it on for a profit. The car has factory-fit Xenons (probably not adaptive, but not sure). Every BMW I've owned since 2003...

    Hi all, This is my first post - so bear with me! I have a 53 plate E46 touring which I have owned for about 2 months now. I haven't changed much as of yet, but i'd really like to upgrade my headlights to Xenon/HIDs, in addition to having white angel eye rings. Currently the car has the...

    Had the front left headlight unit replaced and need a headlight bulb for it (old one damaged). Could someone link me to the correct one? Need it to be the same as the original I assume so it matches the drivers side bulb. Or would I be better off replacing both for a different K rating? Thanks...

    My car recently failed the national car test due to having a hid bulb in non hid lamp. The test says hid lamps are only accepted if they have washers and levelers which mine don't. So there are 2 options - 1. Get washers and levelers or 2. downgrade to halogen bulbs. The tester said the car...
