My Ride: SILVER 2000 323CI
My right "Daytime" Headlamp went out...!!

Hey, my 2000 323ci just told me that the right front headlmap went out. Not the Xenon headlamps, but the two lights that stay on during the day, one of those went out. So how much including the parts and labor will it cost me???? Just wondering if you can help me out. Thanks. I just bought this car too. Im also saving up for a Dinan exhaust and chip package to boost up my hp and speed.

Yup head to your local auto parts store and grab an H7 headlight bulb...the rest is pretty self explanatory once you open the hood...if it's way over your head...hrm call a doctor.

lol taking the bulb out was the easy part, putting it back in was the hard part. first time it took me like an hour to change both bulbs. i could have taken out the headlights, changed it, and put everything back faster than just standing there and squeezing my hand through

X 99999999999999 it's a pain in the ass to put back, i just take the whole headunit out since i can do that in like 5 min haha

if u want to take the whole head unit out it's really simple there are just 4 screws holding it in two on top
and two under the painted bottom trim of your headlights stick your finger behind the trim and pull out it'll snap out and then there will be 2 more screws under it u have to use a long handled tool to get it out, then just wiggle the whole headlight set out and then jus shove the light back in and screw everything back
