So I just searched a few pages on the forums here, and I can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for.

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 actually "trust".

What I'm looking for is a black set of housings. They need to have a good lens in them, and I'd prefer to have LED angle eyes, as I'm told they are a lot brighter, as well as look better.

My plan was to get black projector housings with LED angel eyes, and 8K HID's.

The HID's I would be getting another time, as money is a crunch for me. But those I'd like a link to, if anyone knows of a good company.

I see prices for $35 kits.. and also $400 kits.

I know the more I spend the better the quality in most cases, but does anything have a good suggestion?
(55watt kits)

Also, I don't want any of the p46 assemblies as they aren't good enough for my standards. I need to see the road, and the P46's just aren't good enough for me. (A friend haD them and I disliked them.)

Thanks so much in advance for the help.

hey man, I actually decided to go with 6k HID's and umnitza orion V2's.

I just got the Orion Lites for my halogen housings while I save for the projectors, and one ring broke while driving.

But I'm going to have umnitza install it all for me. I'm just gonna go through them and hope for the best.

Mine came with halogen housing's):

But hey, they're fairly easy to install man, I mean I knew nothing, but going by the instructions, I did it all in all, in about 4 hours. (had to let some glue dry first)

I'd go umnitza, I've heard they're better than the other names out there.

Well as far as I can assume, they're the same to get out. But I'm just guessing.
If you give me the VIN number, my brother's best friend Chris, works for BMW and is the lead tech down in virginia at the largest plant, yada yada...

I can ask him what to do to remove the assemblies and such.
