No i changed the whole headlight unit i believe the unit came off a e92.
The halo ring lights up but doesn't light the beam unless i put the fog lights on

Changing from halogen to xenon/HID lighting is notoriously tricky, from the comments I鈥檝e read on this forum and others. Not saying it can鈥檛 be done, but it鈥檚 not simple, to the point that many don鈥檛 bother. Like Alan says, it鈥檒l need some coding to sort it, but if you鈥檙e new to Beemers, it鈥檒l not be a DIY job for you. A great deal of the modifications on these cars requires a bit of coding to get things working. Hope you sort it though.

I don鈥檛 know anyone personally who I could recommend, but a good search on here and the other forums should come up with some recommendations for you. It all depends how far your willing to travel I suppose, which at the moment isn鈥檛 really an option.
