Welcome to Bimmerfest, Bill!

I moved your question to the E53 forum (X5, 1999-2006) so you can get model-specific help.

hey Bill, I seem to be having a similar problem with my 2006 4.4i. On driver side, the xenon bulb works and conventional bulb doesn't. On the passenger, the xenon doesn't turn on, but the conventional bulb does.

But here's the weird part. When I turn on high beam, the conventional that does work doesn't go bright, yet it will if I flash the high beam.

I changed all four bulbs and checked the sockets and wiring harness, everything seems to be intact and in pretty decent condition. Was about to make a post when I saw yours. If I can figure this damn thing out, I'll swing back by and let you know what I found.
