I don't think anyone should be messing around with anything to do with the xenons mate - BMW won't even change a bulb unless theres a properly qualified technician on hand. Theres a health and saftey issue here and only fully qualified BMW personel should attempt what you are asking - IMHO of course.
The Xenons work off a 12v supply from the car. Nothing dangerous or fancy.
The only high voltages are after the ballast, which is why you shouldnt go near that area. Over 10,000 Volts. (everything dangerous is sealed out of harms way) the ballast needs to step the 12v from the car up to over 10,000v to get the burner to arc, then it requires less then 12v to keep going.
But the area im concerned with is about 11volts.
If nobody wants too then thats cool... i'll ask a breakers yard to do it.
Its the connection to the headlight that im interested in, its just a pull of clip.
As with any electrical or mechanical work it can sometimes be safer to get a professional to do the job if you are not 100% sure of what's involved - it can also turn out cheaper in the long run sometimes !
