My 93 525i suffered badly too. In the end I dismantled the light units and cleaned the interiors. Reflector, inside front glass and the ellipsoid 'eyeball' respnded very well indeed. No cost improvement. In UK we can buy normal 55w halogen bulbs 'filled with Xenon gas' and claimed to be 30% brighter. Cetainly worked for me! Total cost 14 - say $20.

Tricky doing left side but straightforward once you see how to remove the three screws holding assembly together
