Checking in and asking for help!
Hi, glad to have found this site, and sorry for going straight into asking for help, but I have a pretty bizarre problem. I have just moved to France, and brought my 1999 728i over with me - it's too good to leave behind.
I needed to convert the headlights to cover driving on the right, and bought a nice set of new Angel Eyes from eBay. Had them fitted by a local garage two days ago - didn't want to do it myself in case I messed up.
The lights look great - problem is that when you start the engine, after about 10 seconds the low beams start flickering like mad. Main beam works fine.
Local garage have thrown hands in the air, and said it must be a BMW computer issue.
Drove to main BMW service agent in Cognac yesterday - they say they have never seen anything like it, and that as these are not original BMW supplied headlights there is nothing they can do!
Searching the web I can see many comments that this sort of problem may be caused by a short somewhere, or a badly fitted tail lamp? Not sure how to trace this - one other clue is that the dash warning has come up for 'Check lowbeam lamp' which sounds like it can detect a problem during the normal round of prechecks.
Can anyone offer me some advice on how to proceed - it will be very gratefully received - in English or in French!
Cheers - Tim.
