3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
I spent over a month trying different bulbs to get the best light output but I always had a problem; the light was yellowish even if I used the white bulbts etc.
Yesterday I measured the voltage (with engine running idle) and I noticed that the voltage reaching the H1 bulb was 11.2 volts only whereas the voltage reaching other electrical parts of the car was 13.5 (normal).
That loss of almost 3 volts is translated into innefficient light output and more generated heat on the wires. It seems that the problem is at the end of the wires and at the connectors, which are very dirty and rusted - copper wires became green (at the point that they need replacement).
Does anyone know where to get replacement connectors and wires for my E30 driving/high beam lights?
you can still keep your smileys... i think you may haev missunderstood what i was saying, the stock wires are just so i dont have to fool arround with switches, everything works the same. but anyways yes a nice high watt H1 would do the trick. im hoping to find an off road light that will fit in there somwhere arround 250 watts...
