BMW 330I Exterior Lighting Headlights problems : 3.

In 2002-2005 bmw 330i Sedans With The Xenon Headlight Feature, bmw Opted To Use Zkw Brand Headlight Assemblies Instead Of Al/bosch Brand Assemblies. The Zkw Brand Assemblies Have Plastic Projector Reflector Bowls Whereas The Al/bosch Assembies Have Metal Projector Reflector Bowls. As A Result Of Constant Heat And Concentration Of The Xenon Bulb On The Plastic Projector Bowl, The Reflective Surface Begins To Deteriorate. Soon Enough (after A Few Years Of Use) The Bowls Receive Brown/blackish Burn Marks From The Concentration Of Light. The Burn Marks No Longer Reflect The Xenon Light And Cause The Output From The Xenon Zkw Headlight Assembly To Be Fainter Than Original State. Numerous Individuals On The bmw Car Forums Have Experienced Similar Problems And Have Made Note That This Is The Cause Of Their Failure. Note: Some 2002-2005 330i Sedans Did Come With Al/bosch Brand Headlight Assemblies. *kb

July 05, 2011

Zkw Brand Xenon Headlights – The Back Of The Projector Bowl Is Made Of Plastic (vs. Metal In The Al/bosch Brand, Also Used By bmw), Which Over Time Burns From The Heat Put Out By The Headlights. The Burn Turns The Plastic From White To Brown/orange, Which Severely Reduces Light Output, Making Night Driving Dangerous. I Don’t Feel Comfortable Driving At Night Unless My Hi-beams Are On, Which Is Hard To Pull Off Unless I’m The Only Car On The Road. This Issue Is Most Prevalent In 2002-2005 3 Series Sedans, And The Issue Is Well Documented In The bmw Community. *kb

My Complaint Is About A Problem That I Believe Is Getting Seriously Out Of Hand — That Of Increasing Numbers Of Cars And Suvs On The Road With Extremely Bright Headlights.*jb I Am 52. I Don’t Believe It’s A Vision Problem. For Fifty Years Or So, I Generally Had No Problem With Oncoming Headlights. Then Cars With These New High-intensity Beams Started Appearing On Roads. These Lights Are Painful To My Eyes. They Make It Difficult For Me To See. I Want To Avert My Eyes But I Know I Must Keep My Eyes On The Road. At First I Hoped They Would Just Go Away Or Be Outlawed, But The Problem Has Only Gotten Worse As More New Vehicles With These Lights Enter The Road. Combine High-intensity Lights With An Suv And It Is A Painful And Blinding Experience To Have One Of These Vehicles Coming Head-on Or From Behind, With The Lights Reflecting In My Rearview Mirrors. I See No Sense In Making It Easier For Those With These Offensive Lights To See Better When It Blinds Everyone Else. But Soon Everyone Will Be Blinded When All Cars Have Them — Unless It Is Stopped Now. Please Do What You Can To Get These Bright Lights Off The Road And Let People Go Back To The Type Of Headlights That Worked Just Fine For 100 Years. Thank You, Wes Cogan
