  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, just after a bit of advice on headlights. Specifically, I purchased my car in early 2016, having come from an almost identical 320d of a similar age which had halogen headlights. The xenon's are factory fit (i.e OEM angel eyes) but whilst the light output is ok, and the colour is...
  2. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Factory Xenon lights, thoughts appreciated... Both lights have become, at best, intermittent and mostly not working at all. Switching off/on can make one fire up but both working is a distant memory. I don't have a good one to swap bits with. Obviously, I can just buy two ballasts and two...

    Does anybody know if it's easy to swap factory Xenon headlights for standard ones? Is the loom different? Both my Xenon headlights have become ridiculously unreliable and I'd quite like to get the thing through an MOT before spending fortunes on ballasts and ignitors.

    Hi folks, Can anyone recommend a decent set of bulbs for my car? I’ve just had an evening taking the headlights out and cleaning them up etc. Went to fit the markers I ordered and they are just too chunky to fit. I can’t attach a picture to a mobile thread but I will post one later, but they...

    Looking to buy a car with the above spec. Should it have xenons? Thought such a high spec cars would. I’m just looking at AD. Owner says it’s xenons he’s pretty sure. But they look pretty yellow

    Hi all, Is there any way to improve the brightness and appearance of xenon lights on the e9x ? Ours are standard bulbs so have the yellow looking angel eyes which are a bit naff. I have adaptive LED lights on the m240i which are staggeringly good and after driving this and then getting into the...

    As know one could help with locating a wiring loom I decided to attempt the job myself. Not finished yet but looks promising. Why are cars now a days so over built? I had to remove virtually the whole front end to fit them.

I have contacted dealers all over the world now and keeping get told unavailable so am considering trying to make my own. Now I am looking for someone who already has the lights...

    Hello! My xenons were aiming too high last winter so I got them adjusted down. But now when it's getting darker again (sun never sets in summer here), I realize that I am blinding the cars meeting me. When I got them adjusted, they said that a sensor was broken if they went bad again. When...

    Looking at a 335d which is quite a distance away from me, im just trying to determine which package the adaptive lights came under. The listings of spec seems a little vague as ive spotted a few options that aren't listed. It has Headlight powerwash listed, although i believe this comes as...

    My Xenons were getting fainter and fainter , so doing research I found out this happens over time . So a friend gave me a set of 6000K xenons. And although they are brighter and with a hint of blue. I still think they are dim and have decided to get 4300K. So having decided to replace the...

    Hi Folks, I'm a newbie here, having just picked up my first ever personally-owned BMW this weekend. I used to work for BMW back in 2007-2008 (as a dreaded salesman) and so thought I knew what to expect from this vintage of car but this problem's a new one to me and I can't find anything online...

    Hey guys. Yesterday I bought a set of xenon headlights including ballasts. I was aware that ballasts are non-oem. But he told me that the headlights are oem. Well I got them for 200EUR. I'm trying to install them now, and they have weird wiring. At least it's not "plug and use". Do I need to...

    Hi all, New memeber as just bought my E92 last week, but since I've bought it the front right headlight has not worked properly! The angel eyes work just fine, but the main light and high beam don't work at all. I've tried replacing the bulb but no joy, my next job is gonna be to remove the...

    I'm potentially viewing a 2004 E46 tomorrow, and the owner has made sue i am aware it has Xenons fitted. Now I wasn't that fussed by the thought of xenons. Doing a search, I get the impression it can be easy to mislead people that xenons are fitted when they aren't, that the brightness isn't...

    My lenses are very badly stone chipped it's like a haze covering the lense but worse still is the round ring that looks burnt on the inside, must be due to high miles. Can anything be done?
