Internal headlight wiring is extremely flaking off its insulation, revealing bare wires throughout both headlights. Both sections of the light are affected, xenon and halogen. Discovered during routine bulb replacement. Merely touching the wires caused extra flaking. Seems to be a potential electrocution/fire hazard.

Headlight went out, upon inspection by a local independent BMW specialist it was brought to my attention that the rubber insulation on all of the wiring inside my xenon hid is flaking off. I was told those a common issue on most mid 2000S bmws. I was quoted 4000 for replacement of both headlights and they would eventually begin to flake again. With the recent onset of bmws catching on fire I would think this is a possible recall issue.
