How often should I replace my BMW headlamp bulb?

Quite simply as soon as you are aware it isn’t working. It is a legal requirement and a very important safety feature.

Some newer cars often make use of LED lighting which are practically maintenance-free. Bulbs on the other hand are prone to deterioration over time and can fail. That said, when the lights do not work properly it can be the case that there are other issues with the headlamp unit. The units usually have a separate fuse each which can fail too, it is therefore advisable to check the fuses first before replacing a bulb. Other bad electrical connections can be caused by damaged wires or lamp sockets.

What causes BMW headlight bulbs to break?

The most common reason for a headlight bulb to break is that the bulb has been used for too long and has reached the end of its lifespan. Other reasons include physical damage to the bulb, such as from a rock or other road debris, or from a faulty electrical connection.
