xenon flashing

Hey guys,

I got a 01 325i sedan. I am having problems with my xenon headlights. About a minute after I turn them on they both start to flash simultaneously. Has anyone had this problem or does anyone have a solution? I already got new bulbs so I dont know what else it could be. But its driving me crazy! PLEASE HELP!!!

All depends where you buy and who does the work!

a cheap alternative is to buy a d2s hid kit and get it installed. which will save you a lot of money and time.

Faulty ground at left rear tail light, quite common.

Also a failed LCM will do the same, not so common.
