Hello and good morning to you Pac Northwest folks.
I'm down here in Florence. '04 325 for the wife and '09 F800ST for myself.
They certainly are the ultimate driving machines.

I'm already looking at upgrading headlamps to "halo" or "angel eyes". Need to find someone who installs locally.....

Welcome! Also if your headlights are factory sealed, you are going to have a tough time getting angel eyes in there.

Yeah I've concluded that. That's why I'd want someone to professionally install them rather than attempt it myself. I definitely need to upgrade my HIDs...they are the yellowish looking HIDs. Either that or I don't have real HID bulbs.....

illestminimike 11-02-2012 09:28 PM

You don't have HID's.

I know I have H7 bulbs for the high beams. What do I have for the low beam projectors?

Yeah there pretty hard to install on facelift coupe for some people, There's always the bake method, but I used a Heat gun instead.. Welcome mate! :hi:

For those who would upgrade to just the angel eyes, that seems like a good way to go. To keep it simple and because I don't trust myself, I will probably just upgrade the whole unit instead. For now, I plan on upgrading the H7 bulbs to something a little more brighter. I took my son for spin last night and he even mentioned how bad the low beams were.

good luck finding a place that will do it. most places wont deal with baking headlights because they dont want to be responsible.

777eThOd* 11-05-2012 06:36 PM

Up to you sir, either, you buy a pair of eBay ugly halogen headlights for like 400, or do it yourself cheaper, now I saw a member here selling a RARE set of facelift headlamps, lemme get the link for you, hopefully he's still got it.

Finally found them! http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=951486You need to get these, there in great shape. And $300 is a great price! My angel eyes cost me more than $300 but there 16 colors, but I'm only running 5000k-8000k or red.. But these are perfect, just easy plug and play..

Thanks for looking that up. I'm going to pass for now. I bought some Phillips Extremes today and I'll just use those until I upgrade fully. I also stopped by the BMW dealer ordered a manual for the navigation and phone system; those not available for download on the BMW website.
