I have a question for some of you that have 01-03 Factory HID's. When I look at my HID's it seems that the drivers side it brighter than the passenger side HID. They are aimed correctly, just wondering if this how they are or is one of my HID's jacked?

Do you think it might be that one of the HID filaments is going out? What I need to do is take a picture.

Thanks Mark

I think that it is just design, I saw another E39 on the road today and it had the drivers side brighter than the pass side. Your threads helped though because I was curious as to the beam pattern and I have the same beam patterned as described in your threads.

the side of the road where driver may need help (i.e., deers darting out) and cut off short on the driver side to reduce glare to oncoming drivers.
