On my 2006 650i when I hit the high beam switch, the low beams go to high beam, but the high beams do not come on. Checked the fuse, checked the bulb-- Is there a relay somewhere that could be causing this?

The 6er has bi-xenon lights. The inner two lamps are halogen for daylight running lights only, the outer two lamps are xenon and provide both low beam and high beam.

Wrong Pic

I tried to post a pic of my 650i in My Garage section, picked wrong photo to upload and now can't change it-- I KNOW the one pictured is a 2012 and mine is a 2006 and I'll change it as soon as the program will let me!

I would just delete the two cars in your garage and re-add the car with the new photos.

The dealer can turn on the inner running lights but they run at only 3V (they typically charge about $100 for the programming). If you want brighter bulbs forget the dealer programing, you will need to do some serious custom wiring to run 12V to the inner sockets plus some bright H7 bulbs and a few relays.
