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 any risk to having the AL lenses on ZKW projectors?

Should not be an issue. Just keep an eye on those ZKW projectors since they're notorious to have "burnt bowls".

How do I tell if they have "burnt bowls"?

I have read a few posts about how it happens, but have not seen any pictures or descriptions of how to identify a burnt bowl.
