      Well... they'll look stock but I'm going to switch them over to LED's, and then I'm going to switch my third brake light, reverse lights, side marker lights, turn signals, and parking lights into LED's over time I Might end up going with aftermarket parking lights if I can find a pair that would fit my car, I haven't really decided yet...

        Looks great, it's a very nice mod. Well done!

        What year BMW e36 headlights are those from?


        I wonder if these would work: (e36 projection lights + side turn signal lens in one unit)

              Thanks again guys....

              Geoaidan, the ones I got were the 92-96 I believe.... I didn't get the ones with the turn signals because I wasn't entirely sure that the turn signals would fit, and it's alot easier to cut up a header panel than the fender... with that being said if you were going to buy headlights and turn signals your better bet would probably be to buy a set where the signals are a different lense just in case they don't end up working out and for easier fitment.

              Chuch, our stock bulbs won't fit in the e36, but we did use the stock wiring... I don't remember off hand if my fiance spliced the wires or not, but I know that the set I bought came with a clip that did fit on the stock connector and changed the lights over to the ones that came with the headlights. The headlights themselves took an H1 bulb but the ones I bought were HID ready. Here's the link to the ones I purchased: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...9576&viewitem=

              If you look in his store he does have more of those same headlights he's selling now. With that being said you Might be able to find a set that work with our 9005/9006 bulbs but I really liked the look of the euro spec ones. Also this is the HID kit that I bought for my car, seems to work great so far http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=320364581578 If you do buy from him make sure you specify the H1 bulb and then choose your color temp (mine is 6000)

                  The ones I got are dual glass, the outside of the lense is glass and there's a glass lense over each bulb to spread the light better. I like glass since it won't yellow

                    Very nice! Will have to do this mod to my car sometime during the winter. Debating whether to do halo with stock lens or changing over to BMW e36.

                        Thanks, bud. For me, it is down to cost & amount of work. Still am deciding how long I am keeping the car for. I usually change cars once a year. But I like my Buick to a point that I'm seriously considering on stretching it for 5 years this time around.

                            It looks fantastic; how much time did you spend on it? I would be happy to install something like this on my car. Because I only drive in the city during the day, I don't think I need the same headlights. My best friend is an expert in the field; he said these headlights will give my car a new look. Do you think it is worth it? I recently bought a new flagpole light, and my yard looks so much better. I didn't spend a lot of money, but my wife's joy is boundless. My friends are admiring the new look.
