Headlight question

Just noticed my passenger headlight looks really dim. It cones on but is very dim . Any ideas on what this could be ? Bulb? ballast?

since you need to remove the headlights for any bulb swap maybe start there? perhaps having a new ballast off ebay wouldn't hurt either since the bumper needs to come down.

Swap parts one by one from the right to the left side and you'll figure out if it's a ballast, bulb, etc. Best thing to do is buy replacement HID stuff in pairs!

I started my 750LI and got a warning that left side headlight failure. Both high beam and low beam were out. Would this be bulb,ballast,or fuse?
