Always wanted a cooper s, now I have one!

Hello all,

I have just purchased an R53 mini copper s in hyper blue! Lots of kit and in good condition. Only problem is, I had a headlight out yesterday 3rd February 2012, I replaced and it worked fine. Today 4th February it is not working again. I spoke to the previous owner and he had only changed the bulb last week. What's going on?? And these xenon bulbs are bloody expensive to replace
Apart from that, can never get bored of the supercharger whine!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks allot

Ips

Is it defiantly the bulb and not the connection,you could try the bulb in the other headlamp if it works it's the connection.

hmmm... from what you're describing i highly doubt that it's the bulb. Maybe a seal broke and moisture is coming in? I suggest just changing the whole unit, it's really not that expensive. I found a replacement unit for you on ebay ebay . co . uk /itm/Nearside-headlight-BMW-Mini-Headlamp-R50-R53-one-cooper-S-LH-N-S-NEW-RHD-/380385513785 Nearside headlight for BMW Mini Headlamp R50 R53 one cooper & S LH N/S NEW RHD | eBay[/url] it's 75 pounds and i think it should solve your problem. please keep us posted

And congrats on your sweet ride, love it to the full

P.S. sorry i broke down the link with spaces but i cannot post a full link untill about 15 posts
