  • Hid install

    Hi guys new too this forum so hoping I’m posting this in right place. I installed a hid kit today in my f30 bmw. The lights are working but have noticed the beam pattern is messed up since installing. They have been installed into projector headlights so I don’t understand. Any help would be much Kt appreciated. Thanks

    Either the bulbs are not the right type for the projectors, the bulbs are just cheaply horribly made, or they are not installed quite right.

          So it's probably a halogen projector. What bulb does it take? Make sure the bulb is seated properly and the headlights are aimed properly.

            yes I think they probably are halogen projectors although the drivers side light is perfect. I had the lights aligned when I installed them so they are aimed properly but I know installing hid’s can knock the alignment out again can it not? It’s more of a blob that’s the problem on the passenger side left. I will upload a pic

              Sounds like it's not headlight alignment at all then. That leaves out the bulb not correctly installed, a bad bulb or a bad projector. If reseating the passenger side bulb does nothing, swap bulbs on either side with one another.
