What year X? If it is '07 that's a huge job despite the simple design of the headlight, it's a two day job to remove them. Fenders, bumper and pump have to be removed.

Yep. It looks easy three screws. However, to get the headlight housing out you have to remove the bumper, fender, pump and I think radiator support. I had both of mine replaced by the dealer and it took two days. I saw the car dismantled so there was no funny business. My dealer has done 3 and there is no easy way. I guess BMW built the car around the headlights !!:loco::throw:

maybe because they have been seeing fanatics and owners messing up the headlights, so they say, "lets make it diffcult to these s^ckers! lol
