it’s worth investing in a OBD cable and inpa software package on eBay, much more detailed than a code reader, and only £20ish. which is nothing compared to BMW labour rate for diagnostics. 

Sounds like a good idea.

Do you still have your yellow-ish Angel Eyes by the way? I don't want to start a new angel eye thread because there's been so many but I am struggling to find a set that look OEM.
I don't want bright white/blue looking rings. 

My car is also pre-facelift so I think I'm looking for CCFL? Is that right?

Weirdly, the lights went off today!

Driving 'enthusiastically' this morning with the kick down up to about 6k RPM and as soon as I lifted the lights went out. So I pulled over, took the key out the ignition and waited a bit before carrying on and touch wood, it's not come back, so I think a sticky speed sensor is likely to be the cause.

I'll look into it more when I get back from holiday in a couple of weeks time but for now I'm pleased, perhaps I just didn't give it enough of a boot-full after cleaning the sensors at the weekend.

Mine did something similar, took a spirited drive and braking and not been back since B)

Yeah I do still have them, original Balasts and rings for over a year now. I got them on amazon, dead cheap.

Just had a look and I can’t see any yellow CCFL’s on there at the moment. I remember the ones I bought had a colour option of white or gold. They do exist if you look hard enough. 

If you get a set I’d happily give you some wiring tips as the stuff you get in the box isn’t ideal.

OK I will keep looking and thanks mate I'm sure I'll take you up on that.
