BMW E46 3 replacing burned xenon projector in Bosch AL headlight
The BMW 3 E46 OEM xenon headlight suffers sometimes from burned projectors.
Most of the times it's the ZKW headlight that has burned projectors, but
also the AL Bosch Automotive Lighting headlight has this problem. The
reflective coating can be burned away complete. We supply new projectors,
it's very easy to replace them. This video shows how.
You can order the projectors through e-mail.

Technology: How a bixenon headlight projector works with a quick lights-on demo
Here wee have a quick overview of how a bi-xenon headlight projector works.
A true high performance headlight upgrade involving a bi-xenon projector is
vastly different than a "bixenon" plug n play HID kit. Projector systems
use a light "cutoff shield" inside to define the shape of their beam
pattern. Bixenon projectors have a hinged cutoff shield that will move out
of the way when the high beam solenoid is activated, letting more light
project through the lens, and creating the high beam.
Demo projectors are a Hella E55 bi-xenon (common in BMW's/Mercedes) and an
Acura TL bi-xenon (exclusive to the 04-08 Acura TL's)
This is the same technology found in all modern high end cars from BMW,
Mercedes, Lexus, Nissan, Acura etc.
eas | aurora Angel Eye Installation Overview - 2003 e46 325Ci
Installation overview of aurora Angel Eye kit on a 2003 BMW 325Ci.
We have seen lots of Angel Eye kits on the market in the past 5 years.
Everything from separate lightsources, CCFL tubes, failing inverters and
LED kits with gaps and warranty issues with vendors. What happens when you
can't find something for your BMW on the market that suits your needs?
You simply design them yourself.
Introducing aurora, an entirely redesigned angel eye kit for your BMW from
eas - unlike anything else on the market.
aurora produces a fully uniform look using a 60 LED array, which matches
most Xenon maps for an OEM look and are very bright - these can even be
seen in daytime. You will immediately know another vehicle with a set after
yours are installed.

Chineese headlight BMW E46 "BRAND NEW"
Horror!!! Regulators of height of luminescence of distant and near light
does not work in any headlight.
Absolute absence of impermeability (hermetic) of headlight. I think water
will get in into a
headlight from a hood even during a rain, not speaking already about
washing of car.
The turn signals lamp does not reach to the right headlight, between them
On chromic details insice very much scratches and spots,

In Part-1 of this two part series, we will replace the front
shock/strut/spring assembly. See Part-2 for the rear shock and spring
The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement
for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer
has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as
fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein
PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any
common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if
• New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.)
• New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto,
• New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads,
• New upper strut and shock mounts
• New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required)
• Rear shock mount reinforcing plates
• Bentley Repair Manual
• BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set
* BavAuto spring compressor tool
• 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions
• 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use)
• 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set
• Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers
FRONT (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but others are similar):
1) Safely raise the front of car, with suspension hanging.
2) Remove the wheels.
3) Disconnect the upper end of the swaybar link from the shock/strut
bracket. Note that the through-stud for the link's upper joint (as well as
the lower) must be secured using a 16mm to 18mm thin open end wrench. This
particular link is 16mm.
4) Remove the strut mounting pinch-bolt. The bolt goes through the strut
mounting clamp on the wheel hub/spindle assembly and has a nut on the
opposite side (some models do not use nuts, the bolt threads into the
5) Set the mounting bracket for the ABS sensor wire, brake pad wear sensor
wire (left side only) and brake fluid hose aside. Note that other models
may have these hoses mounted in a bracket that is affixed to the
shock/strut housing. In these cases, remove the wires and hose from the
6) If the vehicle has adaptive headlights (self-aiming), disconnect the
sensor link from the control arm or the sensor bell-crank arm. The sensors
may only be present on one side of the vehicle.
7) Place a support or jack under the lower control arm to support the
suspension as the upper strut mount nuts are removed.
8) Remove the three 13mm nuts that secure the upper mount to the body
(strut tower), under the hood.
9) Gently lower the jack or support, from step-6, and lower the strut
assembly. Pull the strut assembly up and out of the hub/spindle. A helper
may need to push down on the hub/spindle as you pull the strut upward. If
the clamp is too tight for the strut to pull out, use a cold-chisel or
large flat-blade screwdriver as a wedge to open the clamp a bit. Tap the
wedge into the split in the clamp, widening the clamp, allowing the strut
to be removed.
10) Once removed from the hub/spindle clamp, remove the strut assembly from
the wheel well area.
11) Install a spring compressor to the spring on the strut assembly.
Compress the spring until you can tell that the spring pressure is relieved
from the upper and lower spring seats.
10) Remove the upper shock/strut nut that is at the top of the assembly, in
the center of the upper mount. To remove the nut, you can use the method
shown in the Spring 2007 issue of our Fast Times newsletter, page-7, or you
can use an impact gun. DO NOT use an impact gun for re-assembly!
11) Once the nut is removed, disassemble the upper mount, upper spring
perch and washers from the shock's piston rod. Keep track of the various
washers and their locations.
12) Pull the spring (and compressor) off of the shock/strut.
13) Assemble the new shock/strut and/or spring.
14) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube
requirement). Watch the video and see our tech blog for the full DIY steps
