  1. General E46 Forum
    Hello, I have a 2000 316 that is pretty reliable. However last night my buddy was in the parking lot and said one of my headlights was on. I remember that day I turned on my car, never drove it, never turned on the lights. I received that text the next morning and went and checked. No headlight...

    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...

    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.

  15. DIY: Do It Yourself
    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...

    So after some research on why my passenger side xenon bulb would intermittently go out (similar to this thread). Research led me to believe it might be the igniter but I first wanted to swap the bulbs around to rule them out. My big hands were making the process difficult and in the process...
