Hi All

Haven't been around for a while since selling my E30 M3 , but need a bit of help with a Xenon light problem on my E46.

The lights are factory fitted not aftermarket, and the problem is that the n/s one sometimes is slow to come on or doesn't come on at all especially in cold damp weather.

I have changed the most expensive item the control unit but the problem is still there.

Someone suggested the bulb so i swapped these over hoping the fault would change sides , which of course it hasn't.

I see on the OEM diagram that there is also an ignition element , could this be the problem maybe ?

Any help most appreciated as this is becoming both a nuisance and expensive

TIA Andy
