  2. SuperFast flicker after installing LED tails & park lights to my 2003 325i

    General E46 Forum
    I have constant, all the time, super fast flickering. The car is a non-xenon standard headlight (H7) 2003 euro sedan, with auto headlights and wiper control. When I got it the reverse lights were letting the rainwater seep in, so I bought a new set of LED tails to replace all the rear lamps...

  6. Halogen Headlight Flicker

    Lighting Forum
    I have an 03 E46 325i with halogens getting bright/dim rapidly whenever I hit a bump, or even when I first turn the car on. It's not like the Xenon/HID flickering issue I've read so much about on here in that the headlights never go "off/on", just dim and it appears to be both lights at the same...

    I have a 2001 330Ci with factory Xenon's, and recently they have been flickering together every so often.

  11. Are you smarter than me??? Probably!

    General E46 Forum
    So, my 2001 330xi has more idiosyncrasies than Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man... I've been battling one of them for about 3 years now. You would've thought I might give up at some point and let a stealership or at least a local shop ream my wallet. But no! I am apparently too cheap and continue to...
