Headlight problem

Hey everybody got a little problem. I was driving yesterday when my right low beam stopped working. I thought maybe the bulb just fried but when I unplugged the bulb socket from the wire, the connector on the wire looked burned. I'd post pictures but my camera isn't here right now. I'm trying to find a new connector but not having much luck as I don't know what that connector is actually called. Maybe someone that knows can point me in the right direction?

Hello... I would just go to a junk yard or BMW auto dismantler. They'll have the part and/or you can pull it out yourself.

Good luck!

So I went to our local junk yard yesterday to see if they had any BMW's there. Not a chance. Our city sucks. But i decided to look under the hood of some car and what do I see there? The exact wire that I needed almost in perfect condition! So I decided to try it and it worked! Thanks for the suggestion it really helped me out a lot

AWESOME!!!

Sometimes I go to our local "Pick N Pull" to get some extra parts for my Beemer. It's a hit or miss kind of deal since they don't always have BMW's.

Sometimes I buy parts that I don't really need at the moment... .

But The TACO Truck (aka Roach Truck) outsite of the yard sells some really good road side taco's for $1.00 So it's not always a total loss!
