My Ride: 2001 BMW 325ci
Xenon question

I got into an accident in my 2001 BMW 325ci a while back the and whole front end had to be replaced. I had Xenon lights and they were blue. The body shop installed Xenons but now their white. I just found out yesterday and i was pissed but yea. Aren't all Xenons blue? My mom has an X5 and hers are blue. ANy insights?

Could be a number of things but for one the E46 projectors have less of a blue effect due to the nature of the housing as compared with X5's or even other makes. It could also have to do with the type and color of bulbs installed on your car./
