ks: my bad. I had the orientation of the photos wrong (its side down, not front down). The brackets to the side of the car are the same, but no cracks.

US 2006 525 with Xenon - Bracket design looks very different from thread starter's photos. No damage.

Understood! Just glad there are no cracks. The last set they installed on mine have lasted quite a while now, so hopefully they are fixed for good.

Yes, it's a warranty issue and they will replace them. Takes 20 minutes or so.

I bet your brackets are cracked too! Have a look at your left and right front light assembly mounting brackets. The bracket holds the light assembly to the side front frames under the hood. (Hard to explain...see pics below)

I went to my dealer, I checked every E60 they had in service, and BINGO, they are all cracked. My dealer is looking into it...However, the part number written on the bracket references that the entire assembly would have to be swapped out to fix it...($1000 per side! - under warranty of course) They didn't want to swap it until they heard back from BMWNA.

Anyway, here are some crappy cell phone snapshots of the bracket's location. (the crack is hard to make out in the pictures but basically, it is cracked across the bolt hole)








Interested to know who DOESN'T have these cracks!

Cheers,
Marco
