Angel Eyes 2006 325i please help

This may seem like a really stupid question and I am sorry if it does but do all models of this car come with Angel Eyes?? Either mine are so dim they appear off or I'm losing my mind and neither of mine work. Any ideas, suggestions??? I do get a bulb code area that flashes twice when I start my car but how likely is it that both of them go out??

Nope 325s do not come standard with xenons. Check in your headlights for rings around the headlights and also for a large bulb looking thing that are your low beams. From your wheels you probably don't have xenons. At night is the color yellow or white-blue? yellow is non-xenon (halogen) and white-blue is xenon

I definitely have the xenons but my confusion lies with just the halo bulbs. Is it likely they both go out or are so dim they dont look like they are on?

Mine are a dull yellow. Dirty compared to the Xenons when they are on. I have heard that LED replacement bulbs for the pre-LCI cars are hard to find.

I just took this pic. You can see the Xenon light is nice and white...clean. The angel eyes are a dull yellow. I want to swap the bulbs out to LED.

Yes you have the xenons but the angel lights bulbs on your car are dull yellow. I changed mine years ago for a white LED and look son much better and much brighter now. Its bit of a pain to change them but its worth it.

Search here in the forums just like a did. Good luck!

Could be, there is only one bulb for each headlight angle eye.
