Headlight housing, what and where to buy

Hey guys,

Where do you buy headlight housings at? Just the housings itself, no electronics or lamps. I have the adaptive Xenon lights and some of the tabs are broken so they're not held in solid in the car. What is the part number for the housing on both sides? 2011 135i coupe, US car.

Thanks!

Bmw sells some sort of tab rebuild kit for these headlights. If you search for that I'm sure you can find the part number.

Any idea what happened to your headlights?

Not the slightest of clue. I think it came like that and I just didn't notice until I put in the LED halos in. I've only had it for 12k miles.

If it's adaptive headlight failure, you need to move the ballasts. Otherwise - idk.

Nope, just the tabs that hold the headlight assembly to the car.
