Mein Auto: BMW 328i Coupe
Question Need help

Ok I have a 2008 328I coupe with xenon headlights. When I bought my car in 2008 I did not get the cold weather package so I did not get the headlight wash system and the heated front seats. Now my problem if I just retired and still in Germany and they require the head light wash system if you have xenon headlights. Now my question is does anyone know where i can buy the complete system this means form the wiring harness to the jets and everything in between? Also will the system from a sedan or touring 328I work on the coupe? Well also while i am asking if there is no way to install the was system does anyone know if I can swap my xenon head lights for halogen lights and if so where could I get the halogen lights?

bmw has a retrofit kit for this
61670400875
includes everything you will need. about 250. not avail in the US, but a euro dealer should be able to get it no problem.

you will need to get the bumper cover caps painted, they come primered.

edit:
i take that back, tischer bmw in MD has it

Part Number 61670400875
Part Name CLEANING SYSTEM
MSRP $246.95
Core $0.00
Save $49.39
Online Price $197.56

it looks like a straight forward diy, but i believe the passenger fender needs to come off as that is where the reservoir is. front bumper obv needs to come off.

the coupe may have a different P/N but i cant find it. i would check with a dealer. the caps and reservoir will definitely be different.

you'll need to call a dealer-- some sites list it for both, but i suspect there's another PN for the coupe, i just cant find it in the parts catalog.
worse case you can use it as a roadmap to get the parts by themselves.

Fianlly

Ok just so everyone knows. If you have a 328I coupe and you need the headlight wash system then you CAN NOT GET IT. You might be able to buy all the pieces but there is no after market system like what would come in the car from the factory. There is one you can get overseas but it not the pop up I will include the link to it. If you would like pics of what it looks like installed email me at ammomel@yahoo.com
