If you're willing to take a drive to NJ, some of the members might be able to help you out.

Actually, Matt (itsbrokeagain) and I are going to help Alex (mdmaxxx) install his coilovers at Moe's (ejazbmw) house this Saturday afternoon in Sayerville, NJ. If you want to stop by, we can have a look at it for you and see if we can help.

I thought yours was PnP. What's the error about? If it's a DRL bulb just replace it with your H7 lowbeam bulb from your halogen headlight.

Last time I worked on it was over the past weekend. I think I made the wirings much better and I'm down to the "normal" (ie the lowbeam and lighting system errors, the intermittent beeps, the flickering on startup, and intermittent loss of lowbeams) errors that you'l get from a halogen-xenon conversion. I'm ordering the some BMW connectors for the ground wires and that should improve/complete my wiring mod.

I'll be getting the parachute harness to get rid of these errors. We'll see...

Yeah I still have some work to do unfortunately.

Btw, is your headlight still HIDS or was it converted to halogen?
