1991 525i German Model
I am looking for an owners manual in english. Does anyone know where to get one?

Does anyone have any information on fixing or replacing the low beam headlights when the lens darken?

Ebay may have a manual, I saw one for $75 but I'm not a fan of ebay. If the light has darkened from corrosion or dirt, the whole light may need replacing. I'm not sure if it can be just cleaned out.

the glass might actually be dirty from the inside. We had that on my Touring and we just unmounted the lights, then took off the glass and wiped it clean...
if it's a problem with the lense or the reflector, get a replacement from a junkyard... they only sell the complete sets though...

where R U from? And by the way, welcome to United Bimmer!

I am living in small village in the Mons, Belgium area. I think that the low beam lens are a plastic and have discolored with age. There is a salvage yard at the army base in Baumholder that I am going to check out. The car does not have any fog lights either and I am going to try to add them. It is going to be interesting working on this car. I have already gained a lot of respect for the German engineering that went into the BMWs.

Thanks for your reply,

Welcome to UB! Hope you are able to find what your looking for, like denyo my lights had dimmed a bit and I took a closer look and the lens was dirty, hopefully thats all you have to do as well. Oh and 1991 525 ftw! Post some pics.

wow, so now we are like 3 Europeans here (not counting the British because they don't want to be part of "continental" Europe anyways) ;) :P
