    I have a 2000 528i with 104,000 miles on it, I am looking to upgrade the headlights to a HID with halos. The car came with stock Xenon low beams, and halogen high beams. The problem is wherever I look online nothing fits the car because of the stock Xenon's. I have called around to local...

  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello! I'm new here and I made this account solely because I couldn't find any other thread with info on good LEDs for a 2015 F30. I recently got Depo headlights to replace my stock halogens and the came with halogen high/low beams unfortunately. I was told LED are a little better than HIDs but...

    Good Morning! I'm new here and I'm happy to seek your help and wisdom. My left OEM HID flickers when I break, I read a lot of threads and it seems like a pin in the rear tailights might cause the problem. I took out the left and right taillights and come to find the pin *3 on the right burned...

    The first Monday of September marks the unofficial end of summer. Sales are in, summer holidays are over and school starts again. For some, it's a welcome day off before what is likely to be a busier month than the last. The Labor Day holiday has a storied past, one of both violence and...

    Hi All Im new to this forum so do forgive me if I seem stupid for asking such a question. My 325ci is a prefacelift and I bought a facelift 320d yesterday and just wanted to know if I could retro fit the xenon from the pre facelift. Is it possible and is it a simple procedure? My 325 is sadly...

    I currently have HID headlights from the factory that I need to replace but the headlights I'm looking at aren't compatible with factory HIDs or Xenons. Is there any way to make them compatible? Is there a conversion kit?
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I got into an accident in which my hood was dented and my headlight is knocked out of place as well as its housing brackets being completely broken off. The insurance officiant gave me money for a new headlight. I have the stock HID xenon headlights that came with the car and to replace the...

    I have only had my 2008 335i with 40k on it for 3 months and in addition to already replacing Vanos Solenoids I am now faced with a passenger side HID that has gone out. I purchased a set of new bulbs and after entering through the wheel well discovered that the new bulb didn't light up either...
  15. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    Ok, so I took the baby through the touch less car wash the other day. Must be a bad seal in the housing because that evening, the passenger side HID stopped working and there was water in the housing. Took it apart today, bought a new bulb ($$$), put it in.....still nothing. The running lights...
  16. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I purchased a 2013 x3 for my wife about a year ago. After purchasing we realized that the car came with halogen instead of HID headlight, bummer! Does anyone know of it is possible to convert to HID (factory proffered, but high quality aftermarket may work); and if so what is needed in terms of...

    Looking for some info on a good quality H7 HID bulb adapter for converting a set of halogen AE's to HID. Looking for brand names or web links. Thanks in advance!
