Mein Auto: 530i

01 530i, I believe Xenon headlights.
Where can I buy some rubber boots for the back of the lights and a couple of the high beam sockets or twist ring that holds them in place.
They were not on the car when i bought it.

Doubtful you'll find such pieces separately. Sounds like your existing headlights have been converted to HID, rather than installing a correct assembly.

If the lights are genuine Hella, you may get lucky at a junk yard.
