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.

They also offer drop in kits for many cars, so no alignment hassles:
I'm hoping this can help some of my viewers get amazing lighting in their
cars and save a few bucks too.
