    Had a wreck on the right side of my 325ci and my lights got totaled out. Don't want to buy a 400$ replacement light when I could just grab a new set for 250-300 off eBay. So I been looking around on a lot of forums, but I can't find out, how to rewire my 325ci down to halogen projector light...

    I have a 2001 325 with the driver's side xenon low beam not working. I swapped the bulbs and confirmed that it isn't the bulb. It's down to the igniter or control unit. However, for my pre-Sept 2001 vehicle, the BMW igniter is $650 and the CU is $600. After market options aren't much better...

    Problem: Heat output from Xenon bulbs in 2001-2005 3 Series causes the reflector bowl in the Xenon Headlight Assembly to discolor (usually a burnt brown) that diminishes the light output, thus causing the entire headlight assembly to look very dark. Apparently this is a rather common problem...

    I thought I'd share this story because it saved me a lot of money: I noticed that my (Xenon) lights were not quite as bright while driving at night and stopped by the BMW dealership to have them take a quick look. The lenses were fine, but they said that my bulbs likely need to be replaced...

    I see it as a reoccurring theme in the for sale section of not only this forum but many others as well as auto sale websites. Why do people say "TASTEFUL MODS"? In almost every case I say to myself "why the hell did they desecrate their car?". I'm a firm believer that stock never goes out...

    Hey everyone, i find myself driving around a night with regular xenon headlamps on and everyone flashes their high beam at me like i have mine on or something. Im pretty sure the lamps are normal and people just dont know they come like that or are they adjusted too high if thats possible?

    I need to replace the Xenon bulbs on my 328i, but I noticed that they come in different wattages. What is the best wattage (45/55/65) for 328i. Is there an easy way to know without taking the old ones out first? TIA
