Pinkish Purple Xenon Light - Sods Law
My wife and I decided to sell our beloved 2004 fully loaded X3 (only 76k miles) as we need more space and want to trade up to a 2009 X5.
I put the car on Craigslist on Monday, the same day took the car to Ikea in New Haven and the sunroof rear section wouldn’t close when I got home. Also the radiator fill light intermittently comes on and now when I had a line of people to view the car on Saturday morning the passenger Xenon has turned Purple. I don’t think the car wants to leave us...
Anyway I want to get all these items straightened out before she finds a new owner. I have looked on the forums and been in-touch with Howard T from down under he has shared a fix for the rear portion of the roof so at least all other functions will work.
I have just ordered a new radiator level sensor from Darien BMW and I now need to fix the Xenon. I believe the bulb part number is: 63127160806. Does anybody have any good recommendations for a replacement part? BMW Darian wanted $220 +TAX.
Ideally I would like to pick on up locally or buy online. Also does anybody have any pictorial instructions regarding how you change the bulb?
appreciate any advice, thanks guys!.
