The E46 M3 12-24-2012 10:26 AM

M3 Headlights & 330 Ci Headlights
 
Are the E46 M3 Headlights the exact same as the ones on a 330CI, both the same xenon headlights?

I know it may seem like a silly question, but I kind of noticed a small difference between the 2 but I haven't stood in front of both cars to see if there is an actual difference.

Can anyone clarify this for me please?

Depends what year, The M3's never got the facelift that the 330Ci got from 2004-2006.
Therefor Some M3 headlights won't fit a 330Ci from the year 2004 and up.
The 2001-2003 Coupe look pretty similar to the M3's but i would try it first i'm not 100% convinced they fit since the M3 uses a different hood and Fenders.

The M3 headlights (from any year) will fit on all pre-facelifted coupes.

Some 323/325/328/330 coupe pre-facelift headlights have silver inserts, as opposed to the black on the M3.

I want to say that Euro cars had that but I may be wrong.

Prefacelift 330ci have the silver trim insidde the headlights. VS black for everything else, including M3

well xenon was an option, so some might be halogen headlamps.
also the earliest E46 xenon are not the same as the bi-xenon, but dimensions all the same.
