    Hello to anyone unfortunate enough to click on this thread, I have been battling my passenger xenon for quite a while now. It originally broke around 4-5 months ago under heavy load, I was smashing back roads at night and shifted 2nd to 3rd around 6k, after doing so I realized I could barely...

    Hey Guys, Just wanted to chime in for anyone else in the future that might end up here. Good fix here, please read. I was having issues (2004 325iT) with my driver's side headlight stuck in the down position. Both headlights were functioning and the passenger side was leveling. I went through...

    Hey guys, How do I install angel eyes on my 2004 facelift E46 touring as parking lights. From what I've read, parkers are slightly different to the way everything is set up in the US. if I can't get them in as parkers, is there a way to install them with an on/off button next to my DSC button? I...

    2003 bmw 325i (130k miles about) My front left headlight will not turn on (used to turn on and off several months ago but around that same time it just turned off and doesn't work). The bulb works and the bright's work (although those are the two middle lights, different bulb). I have halos...

    Hi everyone. I tried to code my blinkers on my e46 116i FL because that one blink really annoys me. I tried it with NCSExpert but I failed miserably. Now I noticed that when I turn of the car with the Headlight switch on the most right position, the dash light stays on and the light switches to...

    Bmw e46 330ci 2001 Hi everyone, I left my car out in some heavy rain the other day and went to go for a drive and one projector light wasn't working. These are the lights that come on when you drive at night. When I turn my lights on, there's 3 short, sharp, quick bursts of yellow light and...

    Hey all, Question about e-46 R shrouds and retrofitting AL halogen headlights into projectors on a facelift E 46 sedan: Any ideas why the fitment of the shrouds would not work here? It's not a matter of fitting the shrouds over the projector, but rather there doesn't seem to be enough room in...

    Hey, I have to fix my headlight leveling sensor so I have the sensor rod and the BMW Headlight Level Sensor - VNE 37146784696. I'm trying to find the part number for the male part that connects into the 'BMW Headlight Level Sensor - VNE 37146784696' part. The wires for mine are torn so I need...

    Going to a junkyard soon and I'm going to snag some xenon headlights if I see a good set. What pieces do I need to make the swap work (besides the headlights)? I already have all the coding side stuff but do I need to grab the LCM or anything? Thank you!

    What’s the whole procedure of removing headlights on the E90’s. I hear there’s a baking part to it. My 2007 needs a cleaning and I’m thinking of painting the chrome black.

    I have had my 2004 E46 325xi for a year and a few days as of today. The one I purchased was equipped with the AL HID Xenon Headlights and unfortunately for me has caused me nothing but problems. The current problem however may turn out to be the most expensive. About 2 weeks ago my driver side...

    Whenever my headlights turn on automatically, the fog lights go on with it and they won't turn off!! I have tried to press the button but it does nothing! But once I'm off the auto position, everything works fine!. Also, I'm getting false bad headlight lamb, which also disappears after I switch...

    Guys, I have been searching for a DIY guide on how to replace the headlight bulbs on my 330ci. It seems that there's a couple of variations on the type of headlights on the e46. I want to replace both the low beam and high beam bulbs. I am pretty sure I have H7 bulbs.

    Here’s my DIY for installing TheRetrofitSouce E46 projectors. Unfortunately i did this a while ago so I’m doing this from somewhat faded memory. Skipping removing the headlights from the car, you can see my bulb DIY for that since I basically removed the headlights in that DIY. All you do is...

    Hi all, Some advice please. One of my headlights went out and I'm not sure what bulb I need as a replacement. My ride is a 330XI: JS94986 https://www.bmwvin.com Headlight: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=ES53-USA-12-2000-E46-BMW-330xi&diagId=63_0550 So, no 7 should be what I...

    I just purchased a 2004 325iT and the driver's-side headlight is out - the xenon doesn't work, the daytime running light does. The previous owner told me that his mechanic told him that the bulb and the wiring are fine - it's the ballast that needs replacing. I've done some reading and it...
