The buzzing noise is you shutter trying to work when you DRL light is on..what you could do is just flick your high beam on after you start your car..i had the same noise but now i have the AE as my drl so problem was solved.

You need to splice the wire going into pin 2 (inside your headlight) with the wire on pin 4 (ground). See the pics at the first post in this thread.

I seen that .. but on my headlight there is no pin for 2 ... so why would splicing a wire to pin 2 do anything

You need a ground wire so you splice pins 2 and 4 together. Are you using OEM xenon housings? What do you mean there is no pin 2?

I know this is an old thread but i just got my 2006 325i with just 22k km on it! I saw some headlights on ecstuning.com and was wndering why it says on the page that they need to replace the light cpntrol and the foot module?

Here's a link http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E90-325...lights/ES9941/

Any thoughts on that?

My 2006 325i already comes with a leveling dial but no automatic headlight. Do i really need to change light controls? And what does the foot module do? It says i have to change that as well?

Did you get answer to your question? I drive 2011 halogen 328, would adaptive functionality work if I get adaptive headlights?

2. Buy the actual plugs that plug into your harness from realoem here

3. Do not ground the GROUND wire to the CHASSIS!! Tap to the wire directly to #4 wire!!

Anyone who has purchased the correct plugs, which ones did you get for pins 2 & 5? there are a ton to choose from?

Thanks!
