    Ok, I've read many post on this topic but have yet to find a valid conclusion to the matter. A month ago my driver side headlight randomly shut down on me, my first suspicion was that the bulb blew. The car being 13 years old, that only made sense to me. So i went and spent an arm and a leg on...

    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...

    I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. My driver side headlight is out on my 2005 325ci. I replaced the xenon bulb, but it still does not work. However, with the car turned off, I can pull back on the stick (as if i was going to flick my brights) and both headlights come on...

    My passenger side bulb went out. When I went to change it, the plastic around the ignitor broke, on both sides, and can no longer hold onto the bulb. Does anyone have one I can purchase, or know where I can purchase a replacement? Here' the part #: 63126904548 Thanks!

    I replaced my igniter after the original melted. I was waiting on bulbs and when I went to install them, my new igniter seems to be doing the same as the last! Could it be the Control Unit? I'm freaking out a bit since I need to fix my inspection that expired in September..

    Alright, so I have exhausted multiple separate efforts in order to try to fix my intermittent/dead headlight problem on my 2003 325i. The passenger side headlight used to only intermittently go off and on and somewhat recently it just didn't come on again at all. I tried replacing the ballast...

    I had been having the usual "intermittent headlight problem" that many people seem to have in their e46s where one of my headlights (right) will not turn on and once I flipped the switch a couple times, or more than a couple, it would light right up. So my original diagnosis was that it was the...

    2005 330XI WITH XENON FACTORY LIGHTS. I have been told they are Xenon, Bi-xenon, self leveling, auto this, and auto that. Surprisingly, while I have searched seemingly the world for definitive answers, including my original car sticker, I see nothing to indicate whether the lights are xenon or...

    Hi all, Brand new here, looking forward to getting to know everyone! Apologies in advance if I'm posting this in the wrong place.. So I've got a question and I want to know if I'm being unreasonable. Two months and a few days ago I had my local owner-operated European car repair shop fix my...

    I recently swapped the driver's side igniter/ballast on my 01 330xi with an igniter from a 5 series, and Ive noticed that the light output is totally different from the OEM igniter/ballast....are they different voltages or is my lens foggy all of a sudden from the switch?....any info would be...
