    Re: E39 Xeon upgrade question

    saw your post on line about flickering hid aftermarket, i had the same problem only happens after i start the ignition, anyway to make a long story short, I'm using the 12 v source from the foglights instead and it is perfect, you have to turn on the foglights to activate hid but who cares saved 2 grand having it done at the dealer, plus when you do turn on the regular lights my fog lights go on, because i routed the low beam power to the fogs, anyway very very happy I fugured that out.

    thought you would like to know this info.


    very happy z4 owner
