    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...

    2001 325ci When I got the car all the lights worked flawlessly. Then one day I noticed when I first turned on the factory hid low beams after about 5 seconds of being on they would both turn off and back on quick once and then stay on and work fine. Then a month later or so of doing this I...

    Hello E46 fans, I recently bought a 2003 325i after upgrading from a 1990 Honda Civic Hatch back. This is my first experience with HID headlights.

    I installed yellow 3000k fogs in my 1999 328i, and since then, about 50% of the time, when i start the car, and turn the fogs on, the gauges all fall completely, and it buzzes, and then returns to normal. Also, the warning beeping sound won't stop. Whenever this happens, I have to turn the car...

    Ok so I have a 2004 BMW 325i with the auto adjusting bixenon headlights. The headlights are wired way differently then any diagram or schematic I have found this far. The DRL's are not using the halogen bulbs, but rather the bixenon's. In fact the ONLY time the halogen inner bulbs work is when...

    Yesterday I was driving down the road when my radio which is a double din designed for the e46 flashed off. I also noticed my seat warmers would flash on and right back off. I pulled the radio and tested the harness with a multimeter and found out the hot wire was dead. I checked all the fuses...

    Hello, I recently had an issue with my passenger side Xenon. I narrowed the problem down to the Ballast. Purchased one off ebay and replaced it. Fired up fine. The second day, the driver side Xenon (opposite side) turned off, so i turned it off and on again, it fired up again, no problem...
