I purchaced aftermarket headlights and installed high intensity bulbs on my 528i and the driveer side bulbs are much brighter than the passenger side. The driver side bulbs seem to recieve more watts of electricity. I have notice this problem on other BMW 5 series cars. Has anyone ever had an unequal amount of wattage output and is this a common thing. If so how could it be fixed?
I put the Xenon Ultra White Headlights
I have had a problem with my front left blinker, the bulb is not blown and it doesn't blink but ther side marker and rear blink. On the dashboard every once in a while it lights up like the back right tail light is out but it's not it is OK.
I wrote this in a forum and I was told that the lights are taking up too much power and it is screwing up all the other lights. I am not sure if this is true but I am going back to the OLD lights which were fine.
Hope this helps
