The US spec cars have a dual filament bulb (type PY21W).

I think the EU spec cars use a single filament bulb.


You CAN have your car coded to USA specs. I think you will then only need to have the PY21W bulbs installed. I could be wrong though.

Try sending "PATRYS" a private message. He does car coding by remote control via the web. I am sure he can hook you up. IF you know someone at your local BMW dealer they can do this too. But many dealers do not want to do this car coding stuff.

Just a thought. I have an e82 and just sold my e46.
Do you have a headlamp switch with four positions?
