does anybody know if the headlight units should be fixed solid ?
ive got movement up and down on both units when i move them with my hands ?

only had the car 2 days and someone reveresed in to me at quite a speed yesterday at a set of traffic lights. only couple of minor scratches but just noticed the headlights move, so would like to know so if its not picked up when garage are checking it i can mention them.

thanks

Headlights should be fixed.

Sounds like the altercation with the other car has snapped some of the mounting lugs on the headlight unit.

Did you get the details off the other driver, if they are xenon, adaptive units they are 700 each new!

Standard are just Halogen bulbs, lights are made by Hella for both Xenon and Halogen though. Halogen lights aren't that expensive to replace, get a 2nd hand pair for about 200 if that. I've got Xenons on my 60 plate 520d. The easiest way to find if you have them is to see if your front indicators are LED or just a standard bulb with orange plastics, the latter being halogen headlights. Hope that helps!

They should be definitely fixed solid mate, my rear ones wobble slightly, but nothing massive. If you open the bonnet, you'll be able to see if any clips or brackets have been damaged. Pain in the ass with BMWs (at least the new versions) you have to take the bumper off to remove the headlights.
