Available for retrofit in your current car but not cheap...

The new lens on the FLIR camera in my 535d did not fix the moisture problem it has. My BMW dealer (Tulley BMW in Nashua NH) looked at it again (on their dime) and told me the camera needs to be replaced. The quoted cost including about an hour of labor is $3800. At that price I'm going to take the camera out and look at ways to dry it out. The camera does function however the image is very poor or nonexistent due to the detector being fogged from moisture. It may dry out on its own but may take a while. A DIY repair is worth a shot.
UPDATE: I've been checking the FLIR camera performance of the past 2 weeks to see if it would dry out on its own. The camera supposedly is a watertight unit and I was concerned that moisture would stay trapped in there forever and would never dry out. As I was thinking about working on it over the 4th of July holiday weekend, I found it HAS dried out and now works good as new again! The camera may be vented sort of like how a headlight assembly is vented. It may be splashproof and not totally waterproof. Anyhow it's working as good as new again!

It's good to know this group is here. We've been looking for a wagon and although we like the Golf Sport Wagon you can't get it with the combination of normal (not sport) seats, Climatronic, and Nav. So we went looking at other options and found the 328d wagon. Yes it costs more and doesn't have a stick, but it handles sooo much better than the GSW. haven't made the final decision yet but I'm glad I found this group!

Pics soon - there is something about this thing I find perversely attractive. It's not a wagon, not an SUV, not a mini-van. What it is though - spacious, comfortable, easy to drive, 4motion equipped beast of a diesel.

Things done:
Chipped (still not fast, but certainly quick)
Oil Change
Air Filters

Things to do:
Fuel Filter (broke WIF sensor)
Intake Pipe (found crack in bottom)
Winter Tires
HID/High Power LED Kit (projectors have Euro pattern with sharp cutoff and the car has auto-leveling suspension, so a drop-in kit might actually work out)
Wrong forum, this is for BMW's
Also the R320 is essentially a minivan 😆

Are the projectors halogen?

Be weary of burning the bowls of the projectors if you put hid bulbs in there.
