    Hi.

    Just a query about my lights.
    I have 2 lenses in each housing but only one appears to do anything is this right? The inoperative one has a halo around it but doesn't appear to light up at all

    Rich...

    You're right, two lenses on each side but only one lense is used for both low and main beams, the other lense is for effect/looks only.

    Same on the e92 (pre lci). The inner one is the halo bulb. As maniac said, the main xenon unit is both dipped and high beam. "Bi-xenon". :)
