If you have xenon head light and viability pack ie head light washers
63126928502 this is the number I think you need have a look at this link
This is the complet head light I take it that's what you need and not just the bulb/ lamp

I don't know if you have looked round for prices but quick look I found this on eBay

marque that is excellent yes looking at the realoem the part number you quote does appear right and ta for the link (if that comes complete with the bulb, ballest then that a great price). i presume i would have to swap the headlight cleaning "flap" and tube to the new unit from my headlight on the car?
i found this one Mini xenon headlight BNIB | eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-xenon-headlight-BNIB-/320762098191?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4aaee9320f) is this the wrong one?
thanks again, very helpful:smile:

I think it is the wrong one I don't think it comes with the provision for the washer
when I have bought bits from bmw before there pretty much complet and ready to fit
with the link you my be able just to get the light and swap all your bits over give them a call
Anyway good luck :-)

when you describe the sides of the car its normally near side or offside to the kerb this stops the confusion of left and right,so the right hand side front would be o/s/f(offside front)..

i far as i know i think it should fit see if you can get the seller to get some pictures of part numbers and check it against your to 100% i think it will be ok
sorry i forgot to ask a while back what is wrong with you head light is it smashed/ damaged ?
