X3 xenon headlights flickering

Both sides flicker upon driving- independent of each other- sometimes shuts down for a few seconds and comes back on again. Bulbs changed-no improvements. Any clues?

This same thing happened to me when I purchase the X3. I replace them with (https://www.ecstuning.com/b-morimoto...500k/b650~mor/), and it stopped the flickering. Somehow it had cheap lights and where they seat was a bit thinner, causing them to move and lose connection.

It could also be a ballast issue.

One of my lights flickers also and it seems to get worse with high humidity/rain
