    I love what you've done with your car man! Very clean! :)
    I do have a question for you:
    I also have a facelifted coupe like you...and well, i'm not sure if i'll have time to do that whole oven the lights thing to install angel eyes due to school.....but i've researched quite a bit for already made headlights w/ pre-installed angels for the facelifted coupe. I was wondering what you thought about them, and if you'd think they would just be plug'n play?

    If you have a facelift coupe, then 'yes' you will have to use the oven or a heat gun. I used the oven since it distributes the heat through out the headlight and it was easier to take it apart versus using a heat gun and opening up a section at a time. But whatever is easier for you. You will have to use heat to soften the glue.

    Hi! Thank you for ur DIY! I'm going to put the CCFL angel eyes into my car! I already removed:

    + The 2 rubber tubes on each side of the headlight
    + The rubber trim on the side of the headlight
    + All the bulbs
    + 2 screws on the back

    So do you think the headlight is ready to be baked?( b/c i still see a lot of wires in the interior of the headlight and how about the ballast?)

    What should i do next?

    Here is the link that you can see my car and which parts that i have took out: http://directory.e46fanatics.com/car...tanium-Silver/

    I'm expecting ur reply! Thank you so much!

    Well, the way I did it, was:
    - Cut the trigger/remote wire that is a part of the AE kit, I believe it's red.
    - Run a wire to the inside of the car from one end of the cut wire, and connect it to the switch
    - Run another wire from the swicth to the other end of the cut wire
    This way you will create a circuit which you can turn on/off.

    I also have 2 switches because there are 2 trigger wires. One for the Car's ECU, and another for the interior.

    Let me know if that makes any sense, if not I'll try to clear it up.
