SteverinO i will install them tonight.

why i installed one only ? Because i am waiting on one of youse to crash into a light pole so that my buddy at junkyard gets a crashed e46 (god forbid joking)

But its true, i got right side in mint condition for $150 , i am wating on a left one too, he got 2 sets of e46 lights today, i am wating for his call , my left xenon might be one of those.

I dont want to knock the relays because I know they work (I have built them myself) but didnt you say there was no error message in the first place? Seems to me the relay didnt fix anything........you just saw what wasnt there in the first place.....

I did not test lights long enough. Sometime when you turn the ignition on the indicator for faulty bulb would come up instantly, somtimes it would take him 3-5 minutes. Then before the indicator lights up i would turn the xenon light on. Once i do this the faulty bulb indicator would never come on so i could not see it. I tried shuting off the xenon light after few minutes of having them on, and again after few minutes FAULTY BULB indicator would indeed light up once again. ( i found this out this morning on my way to work, when i said it last night i just tested it for like 1 hour since i just installed the right side xenon last night so i have my xenon for almost 24 h)

So to make my mumbuling short, I DID GET THE FAULTY BULB indicator light up this morning on my way to work, BEFORE i installed the relays but thanks god i spoke to steverino and ordered his relays few days before i installed my xenon.

Since i installed his relays yesterday ALL IS GOOD.

And once again. STEVERINOs relays WORK. i drove around for few hours without the xenon on and faulty bulb indicator did not turn on at all.

Thanks STEVERINO
