New owner Headlight issues..

Post by Fastasbmw » Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:11 pm

Hi all,

I have purchased a 2005 120d.. it is a great car.. love it.. been lurking on here a while.. getting ideas and tips

Have changed the oil and filters, Egr and main thermostats plus new coolant, it was running at 65 degs on the way to work, 16 miles, at 05:30 and then only reaching 77 degs on the way home at 15:00 in this heat!!

Also done the CDV delete and camber pin mod so far from this great forum..

loads of stuff still to do..

Some help please... the PO has fitted a TOYOSPORT Xenon headlight kit.. badly.. when I picked the car up one headlight was not working.. then they both did work, then the other one didn't and now neither of them work..

I would like to get them back to normal... what would I need.. H7 bulb?.. does it sit in a holder? anything else you can think of?

Thanks....
