Drivers side headlight flicker with acceleration

I've got an e46 and on light acceleration on the throttle I get flicker on my drivers side headlights and sometimes it even turns off if I blip the gas when I'm taking of from a stop. Also the left left most angle eye (drivers side closest to signal) goes dim and sometimes out when just turning on the car.

I've got xenon headlights installed by previous owner so I don't know much about how well the install was done. But they've held up for 2 years since I've had the car... until now

Any help would be great because everyone seems to just have a similar problem with both headlights at the same time and just on idle so I couldn't find anything to help myself out.

The angel eyes might have a loose connection or failing circuit board (if it has one)

Can you post pics of your headlights?
