1, xenon holder, the wire goes to your ballast (the ballast goes in the tray bottom of headlamp).
2 + 3 + 4 side marker/park light, H7 headlight, angel eyes (need to see which is which)
5 ???
6 self-leveling.


This DEPO is for BMW E53 with Xenon option package, else you have to buy xenon ballast separately.

thanks for reply!


are you sure it's a Xenon one, because i've ordered a Halogen one (H7/H7, afaik).
after your reply i "re-thinked" and got to the conclusion:

1. it's the low beam H7 connector to the bulb
2. power connector for maybe hi beam
3. it's the power connector for low beam, i.e. #1 in list
4. power connector for maybe angel eyes
5. power connector for side marker/park light
6. self-leveling

two "maybe"s because i must somehow check which is which. can i just power it with 12V or it is no advisable?

The rubber cover is removable, just be careful then you can see on those three wires which one is which.

You can put the H7 onto the socket, but that spades connector suppose to go to Xenon ballast. I don't recall BMW uses spade directly to bulbs.

Yes you can power up using 12-v supply, no harm.

did exactly what you've said and connected everything but the angel eyes... my car is USA model and i have no connector for them...

any thoughts?)
