XENON HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT

Mon Nov 12, 2018 6:35 am

Hello everybody,

I ordered an replacement for one of my headlights, but what i received is without lens, even if i specified that i have factory xenon option on my x5.

My question is, are there factory xenon headlights without lens?

X5, 3.0d, 2003, non-facelift.

This is what i have on my car:

This is what i received:

You have xenon headlights and the one in the second is a standard halogen headlight.
A replacement should look the same as your old one but shiny lol.
Send that one back not suitable.

Have a look at Realoem on line. It’s a copy of the BMW parts database as used by Dealers.

Use the last 7 of your VIN in ‘Serial Number’ to pull up your car variant and then get the correct part numbers.

As above, the unit you received is a conventional halogen and of no use to you.
