03 330xi rt xenon not coming on intermitant

When I turn on my headlights, especially in cold weather, the right side doesnt always come on. Usually I can get it to light if I turn the lights on and off a bunch of times.
Does this sound like I need a new igniter? Any DIY on this?

Thanks guys. Love the sight. Wish I would have found it 100,000 miles ago.

I had the same problem, I replaced the Ignitor and it fixed it perfectly. Now i have the other side acting up as well. I would look on Ebay for the part to get it cheap. The part new from BMW will cost around $300. I paid roughly 30 for one on ebay. There are also some good DIY posts on here about Ignitor replacements. Good luck
