Got to be some faulty wiring... maybe a bad ballast???

The Projector46's(Depo) are pretty good lights. I've installed a few sets for some friends and they have all worked flawlessly.

Thanks for the reply, but why would the headlight and the halo on the right side only just stop working? they were actually working fine before.

Okay, lets take another route if you were going to put on new headlights what brand would you recomend? I really like the built in halos?

Nothing wrong with Projector46's.

And I have a LOT of experience with E46 lighting.
