e46 xenon headlights flickering
have a 2001 325i and have noticed the xenon headlights flicker on and off once in a while during driving..
obviously the dealership says i need to replace the whole thing.
Might be the ballast - is the colour of the bulb fading? IE is that side more purple that the other? If so, it could just be the bulb.
I suggest talking to Ivan (propr'one). I think he can help you out even if it is the ballast.
Pay close attention as to when it flickers. It COULD be a connection issue, although this is somewhat unlikely on an oem install.
-Does only one side flicker, or do both?
-If so, is it always the same side?
---In the above mentionned case, move the bulbs from left to right.
-If the same side still flickers, and intermittantly/randomly (not only when you go over bumps), its a ballast issue.
(shameless plug AbsoluteHID Replacement Ballast)
If the flickering changes from one side to another when you swap the bulbs, its a bulb issue, D2S bulbs
If you have anymore questions, let me know.
Thanks Ivan, I'll look into this...
