Thanks. It's a great ($$$$$) hobby when you get into it. I'm already looking at another retrofit using Murano bixenon (basically a bixenon RX330 projector) projectors and clear lenses. I'm not sure if it will fit in the e46 headlight, but we'll find out.

Also of note: if you add on a shield above the existing steel shield in the p46 projector, you can get a decent, flat cutoff without that crazy dip in light spread. It *could* be a viable option if you were so inclined to open your headlights and go crazy with a custom shield. This way you reduce that foreground hotspot and increase distance visibility.

Now gimme free parts! lol
