    assume you've already tried a bulb. if you have the HID
    headlights, it COULD be the HID ballast. most all BMW's
    have a lamp control module as part of the headlight switch. you will need BMW-specific software to scan this system and if it is the switch/module, it will need to be
    programmed to match the vehicle. not an easy car to work on.
