I've noticed on my e90 that sometimes the near side hid light flickers, it's hasn't happened much though I've only noticed it if im driving along where there's a wall or parked cars to the left of me. Could be a coincidence but twice it's flickered when I've quickly accelerated.

Is this the bulb on it's way out or worse again the ballast or some other issue ?

Cheers

It's going to be halogen or xenon unless someone has installed aftermarket HID lights - like from HIDS4U?

On a practical front, see if a wiggle of the nearby wires have any effect?

Pretty sure is xenons in that case, there's no level adjustment by the light switch and it also has washer jets for the headlights.

Not too sure what the difference is between hids and xenon so forgive me....?

But did a waggle help or show anything?
After all a bit of acceleration caused a flicker....

Xenons then, might just be the fitted names of things as opposed to the aftermarket sort..
