When I have my car at Low beam only the passenger side low beam works. So I assumed that the drivers side low beam bulb was burnt out, but when I put on the high beam BOTH drivers side bulbs are working, but than only( one) HIGH beam is on in the passenger side. So I assume I have a problem with bulbs or wiring or fuses? I dont know too much about the chassis electrical wiring diagrams and all that Im just confused, can one of you clarify my problem?
BTW I appreciate the help that was given for the instrument cluster, removed the plastic and installed chrome rings easy! Thanks.
I have a similar problem on a 1985 325e. The drivers low beam is out, but all four come on when brights are flashed. I am not trying to hijack your thread, but thought it curious that it could be electrical. All of the fuses are good.

uh, to clear it up, the Low beams use a dual filiment, one for use in low beam and one for high beam. so if the low or high filiment burns out, u still have the other one left. All you have to do is buy a new bulb/sealed beem.
