headlight... ones great... the others a PITA!
I've done some searching but haven't come up with a answer to my problem....
my 03 325i with stock xenon headlights are acting up. The passenger side works great. But the driver side doesn't always want to light. I could turn them on and off a few times and then she would shine without any problems but now its getting cold out it doesn't want to light at all...
So.... My question is how do i know if i need a igniter, ballast, or a bulb. I'm willing to bet its not the bulb. Being a x-friend of mine had the car and replaced the bulb. I just don't want to throw a igniter in if it is indeed the ballast.
Now as for the bulb... I have no idea where he got it or what not and now have no way of asking him. But knowing he worked at a high end body shop at the time, i'm willing to bet it was a used headlight assembly they had and he used the bulb. But one of my headlights shines blue and the other is white. So where do i go about getting them to match? do they come in two different colors? How do i know when i go buy 1 bulb to make them match... anyone have a preference as to blue or white?
