    Hello guys! Recently I bought a really nice and well kept E46 touring which has xenon lights. One of the headlights had a pretty nice white light while the other was slightly yellowish. I assumed the bulbs are different, so I bought a set of two expensive genuine Osram bulbs (both sold as a...

    Hello! I just upgraded my E46 (02/2000) from halogen to OE used xenon headlights. When I wanted to code my LCM for xenons with NCS, the option for xenon headlights does not exist when looking through options with NCS Dummy. Headlights work normally (i expected flickering with car turned on)...

    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...

    I bought my e46 330i a few months ago as a project...the car came with a set of xenon headlights that were brand new but when I attempted to install them I found the smaller connector that goes into the control module is not there. I'm assuming it would be a connector that came in xenon-equipped...

    I have a '04 330CI with Xenon Headlights, and I'm looking for aftermarket headlights because the stock ones are kinda boring, however pretty much all headlights that I see have a warning that they won't fit Xenon Headlights. Any Suggestions?

    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 guys, I own a BMW E46 Coupe, the year is 2005. The car has adaptive headlights option with Xenon Headlights (Automotive Lighting) and the headlights are really beautiful. I really like them. I have noticed a little issue with the AUTO function on the headlights though.. The headlights are...

    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!

    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...

    Hi there. I have a 2003 325xi and the clear plastic front pieces say AL on them, however the sticker on top of the housing looks white/silver, the Xenon lens does not have the horizontal seam, and the notches do not go all the way around, leading me to believe I have ZKW projectors. Is there...

    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...

    I got into an accident a little while back and destroyed one of my factory bi-xenons and i don't want to spend that much money on a headlight. I was looking at spyder angel eyes but dont know if they will work or how to make them work. Will they just plug and play on a factory xenon car? I have...

    Forgive me, as I'm new to the forum. I've been searching through roughly 12 pages of lighting issue, LCM posts and while I found a great deal of solid advice, I am still left curious about my situation. - Full story to follow. - If you'd like to skip, then the short of it is: 2004 325Ci -...
