    The previous owner seemed to have retrofitted the headlights with these kind of HID's in a halogen housing. It currently has a halogen housing, but I can't seem to figure out what kind of setup these are with the HID bulbs. Concern at the very bottom. Here are the two connectors of the HID...

    Hi there. I have a 2003 325xi and the clear plastic front pieces say AL on them, however the sticker on top of the housing looks white/silver, the Xenon lens does not have the horizontal seam, and the notches do not go all the way around, leading me to believe I have ZKW projectors. Is there...

    Hi all! I’ve been wanting to install the bmw logo projectors in my e46 door for quite some time now but how no clue of how to go about it... I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with this on here. All the newer bmw’s already have a welcome light on the bottom of the door so it’s very easy...

    I know, I know... ANOTHER thread on AE's :facepalm: I've been searching this forum, along with others and can't seem to find a solid answer. The car in question is an 04 Facelift Coupe with Projectors. I've been searching for a high quality kit (CCFL/SMD) that will fit, other than Umnitza (I'm...

    I retrofitted the BOSCH Bi-Xenons from a 2002 330Ci into my '01 330Ci. Last month the ignitor in the driver's side went nuclear and caught on fire melting it, the D2S bulb, ruining the ballast. After replacing everything my driver's side was still dimmer than the passenger side. When I opened...

    Hi there all. Please note this thread is more of an informational one than a easy to follow DIY, its not. Any retrofit is almost always not straight forward. As I have come across almost nothing in relation to retrofits for the facelifted coupe, I took it upon myself to attempt a FX-R...

    I've been looking to try to do this myself but can't find any DIYs, anyone have any experience with it? I have a 2004 325ci so it already has projectors but how do I make them halos? If there really is no way then I can look online for some headlight kit

TO start I drive a 2004 325xi (black on black) What I want to do is replace my current halogen housings with projector housings. I've found a bunch of different assemblies. None of which I...
  12. DIY: Do It Yourself
    If anyone has had their headlights get so dim they hardly light up the road, you may want to check the reflector inside the projector. Mine (stock HIDs on an 03) were the plastic reflector style and all the chrome burned off. Here is my half-ass repair to get the headlights functional again...

    My headlights were getting faded and scratched up. I bought a pair of projector headlights with angel eyes installed. I hooked up the lights and the lights work, but the lights with an extra wire...I assume for the angel eyes. My car did not come originally with angel eyes or DRL's. Do I...
