    E36 Headlights

    Do all E36's have self leveling headlights?

    Just noticed today that mine does but I don't remember my 325td having them,

    Also does this mean I could legally fit an HID kit?

    Are you confusing the headlamp levelling on the dash for self levelling?

    No mate, I changed the headlight bulbs today but when I put the new bulbs in there was a motor noise as if they were adjusting themselves.

    yep that just means you were a bit rough and the levelling motor moved nothing more

    So they don't self level it was just adjusting back to the level it was set to inside the car?
