Angel eye brightness difference 335d

I noticed when i got the car that passenger side angel eye is slightly dimmer than the drivers. Though it might just be the bulbs, so i fitted some horizon LEDs, but i've still got the same problem, probably even worse! I also noticed some bits of broken glass/plastic inside the blub housing but everything seems to be intact?

I know that you can code the brightness of the angel eyes as I have done so with mine. Not sure if you can code them individually or if its for the pair though. Pretty sure its the pair. Might be worth hooking it up and taking a look.

Maybe the bits of glass / plastic are part of the ring, the bit that collects the light from the LED in particular?

I've seen a few cases where the tips of the angel eyes are damaged and melted. When you installed the new light did you happen to look to look at the end of the angel eyes themselves? If this is the case then there is nothing you can do but get a new headlight

Think the headlight is damaged as its all fogged up after i washed it the other day. Shame they are so expensive and difficult to get hold off.

Black grills will be going on asap along with a black 335d badge.

do u have to remove the bumper to take the headlight out?

yes and there is a nightmare bolt to remove headlight from underneath.

theres a good DIY on internet floating around showing bumper removal. then headlights. ideally - look at the halogen to xenon conversion threads as it shows there which bolts to take off for headlight.

Nope. was optional extra. Your car had quite a few extra bits didnt it. like grilles and gloss black diffuser IIRC.

im guessing previous owner changed bulbs from halo / orange to white rings.
