My Ride: 2005 zhp coupe
330ci xenon issues

My passenger headlight keeps going out. I looked inside and the wires inside that go to the ballast are cracking and one is broken. I repaired one a month ago. Where can I find a new harness for inside the headlight without spending a fortune on a new adaptive headlight?

you could try a part german parts store, junkyard, or many online distributors, including the sponsors page on this site.
if the harness is a quick connect, then you'd do well to find the part # and use a search feature on a company's webpage. otherwise, reinsulate, heatshrink, etc...
good luck!
Some say, that inside his helmet, there is another helmet. All we know is...

The main wire harness going to the headlight itself? You can probably buy some new wire at an autoparts store, cut off the old wire, solder the new and just get it conencted to the connector.
