you need to order P46, you can order it with angel eyes depending what kind you like, nope, xenon is a lot better than halogen.

If you are asking which you should order then that leads me to believe you are not familiar with the difference between Halogen & Xenon.

That then leads me to ask you the question: Why are you ordering new headlights in the first place?

Scratched lens? Angel eyes?

You can order either of those independently of the headlight.

Well my lenses are hazed over badly already tried the restore kits. I just want something bright an def angel eyes. I just heard that some xenon lights cause warning light and flicker and don't want to deal with any electrical problems. Would like to spend around 400 or so.

Buy good xenons, from a site sponsor, make sure it comes with a warranty.

Xenons are the sh!t.

Halogens with angel eyes looks retarded. Trust me, I rocked it for about 2 years and I threw everything away because I got so sick of how it looked.

Xenons are not a pain, the Canbus system is bullet proof reliable.
Give us a call ask for Tim or Ash.

Since your car is a 2004 it would have had bixenon headlights from the factory. That means if you reprogram the car for xenons you will have to use the OEM housings in order for your high beams to work.

The other thing you can do is install an error cancellor. This basically fools the car into thinking there is a halogen bulb there so it doesn't cut power to the headlight. These cars can be temperamental with that though - they work fine on some cars, they just never worked right on mine.

i would definitely go with xenons, youll never want to go back to halogens again, i have them and i just installed new bulbs and it made a huge difference in light output and i modified the sheilds and projector lenses so that theres more purple in the cut off and now its more sharp and now they look even more amazing.

I have the factory bi-level xenons and like them a lot. You should get the OEM ones. There's no way you can go with a halogen bulb. You'll regret it if you do.

I know this is for a sedan, but what about for a facelift coupe? I've been wanting to do the same and have heard mixed reviews for the P46s. Like the OP, I'm not wanting to mess with electrical problems, if I can find something that's plug and play for my car, I'd be happy.

Age old question, I know.

I put aftermarket HID's in my facelift coupe and then decided to rip it out and go with an OEM setup - a proper OEM setup, including having the car coded and wiring it so the bixenon functionality works. I would never have it any other way and I'm glad I went the extra mile.

I know this isn't an E36 forum, but do they make these lights for my car, and where can I find more information?

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in ***8220;over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like ***8220;Susan and Bill's car,***8221; it could be used to to make a new phrase: ***8220;their car.***8221;

***8221;They're***8221; is a contraction of ***8220;they are.***8221; ***8220;They are***8221; should always be able to replace ***8220;they're.***8221;

++++++++++++++++

To tie this all together,

They're there with their car.
