I need to order my driver side xenon headlight and if anyone has M3 will know the normal xenon that has the ignitor attached to the bottom of the light won't fit because the air intake is in it's way. The one M3 needs is the ignitor that is not bolted on to the light and has longer wires.

Now I have 2 part numbers but I don't know which one is which, I tried to search on the web but no luck, just wonder if anyone has ETK or something can tell me which one is the one I need.

63 12 6 920 337
63 12 6 911 453

Thanks

Thanks for the info

I got the headlight today and the different between the 2 are 337 has longer wire from the headlight to the ignitor and you can un-screw the ignitor from the bottom of the light and attach it to the body, at least this is how it works for my 02 M3

Also I asked the dealer to show me 453 and is the exact same headlight only the wire is not as long and it won't work for my 02 M3 because if I don't unscrew the ignitor it won't fit decause the air intake is in the way of the ignitor.

May be this info will help ppl with 02 M3 without xenon to get the right part :)
