Thanks Shawn - I ended up discovering that I had both (1) a bent pin in my LED module connector and (2) yet another bad Xenon Control Unit from an eBay vendor. Always go BMW Genuine for these parts.

In summary: if anyone out there has problems similar to mine, you do NOT need to code anything with the Xenon headlights + Adaptive Headlight functionality if all you are doing is swapping out the associated Xenon Control Unit, which is a fairly common failure with the F25 X3. Mine initially failed because the access port on the back of the sealed headlight somehow fell off, allowing rain in, frying the first Xenon Control Unit. Subsequent failures were due to the crappy quality of $50 Xenon control units out there.

Hi shawnsheridan. I read a lot from this thread and you are doing an amazing job here. Thank you about that. I am a programmer and first time have a BMW and think about coding stuff. Could you please pm me the esys instructions? Also if there is a BMW guide or somthing like that for understanding Function Codes that would be great too.
Have a nice day.

Need to use F056 Connection target.

Must use Read (ECU) not Read (VCM).
