The other night I turned on the headlights of our 530i (107k miles) to discover the driver side light is pointing down. I try to adjust it to no avail. I take it to the dealer to get the plastic adjusters replaced after reading about this common issue. After they take apart the assembly I get a phone call that the version in my Feb. 2001 production car, the adjusters are NOT replaceable and I need new assemblies, at the price of $1700+ (and that is a "deal", less than the 2600. list price). How ironic I just paid it off to BMW Financial services and just got the title. I am trying not to freak out as we have our second baby due in November. How in the #$@%$ does BMW justify these 'high performance' lights that go south (literally) after only 8 years and then expect the owner to fully replace them at this outrageous expense? The bulbs haven't even burned out yet, and the crappy plastic parts inside have totally disintegrated. Buyer beware of older BMWs even if they have been pampered (like mine) --- they will hurt your pocketbook in new and imaginative ways! I am being "punished" for keeping this thing for the long term. Oh yeah, from BMW NA: "Sorry, but your car is out of (CPO) warranty. Good Luck though."
