Smile 2003 Headlights

I have a 2003 325ci. It has xenon headlights. When I first got it a headlight went out so I purchased a headlight module and installed it. The problem was fixed. Yepee. The same thing happened on the other side. I purchased another module. By the time it arrived the head lite started working again. I sent the part back... Now it's doing it again and occasionally the other side is doing the same thing.Any ideas.

I went and looked at my receipt for the headlight part. It is called a "xenon control unit" for the headlight, not a MODULE....my bad.

When you say "headlight module", do you mean the lamp itself? If not, it might be time. They last a long time but certainly not forever. D2S from online sources. Even if you stick with the reputable vendors (I would) you're only out less than a hundred bucks.
