Hi and happy
I bought my first BMW about a month ago and just a week ago, I started to have some issues with my HID. Now, since I bought this car used with about 92k miles on it, I am not sure if HIDs are OEMs or were installed using a kit later on. They look blueish color and have auto alignment (move up and down) what I start the car. I don't know what Kelvins they are. So, to make story shorter, my passenger side started to be on and off when I start the car about 10 days ago. First time, I got dashboard bulb out message, turned off the car, then turned it on again and it was working. Few days later, same thing happened, but this time it was off for a good 30 min before, It turned off. Today, all of the sudden, my driver's side light AND passenger side could not be turned on at once. Few minutes later, passenger side turned on, but driver's remained off for rest of the night (I drove maybe 1 hour). Another thing, is that I noticed lights flickering when I hit bumps at times. They never flicker when I turned the car on though.
Now, since I never had HIDs before, I am not really sure what exactly to do with it, except learning from scratch about it. I don't want to just bring the car to dealer and be charged $500+ to replace something maybe I could do myself. Did any of you ever had similar issue? I would really appreciate any input.
