In case you want brighter headlights... here is a twist on a very old subject...

I just got a technical bulletin from Hella, and the first two posts -


1)  Audi Cabriolet, 2003, 2004with Xenon Headlights, Dim lights- Inadequate output

     (faulty reflector coating; solution is "replace lights" - at least Audi pays for this)


2) Ford Galaxy and S-Max with LED bend lighting, mfd. 10/2014 to 2/2016- Lights go off while driving

     (faulty software for the headlight module; solution is "stop vehicle, switch ignition off, then start, repeat as needed")


SO take heart, 2002 fans, there is nothing new under the sun, and new lights are just as unreliable as old ones!

Headlights (or bend lights) go off while driving?


I would be pissed if all they told me to do was 'turn it of and then on again'.

I've know about rebooting computers, but headlights???  Think I'll stick with old reliable H4 Cibies...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
