My Ride: M3 & ZHP
Don't have any current pics of my car's output, so instead here are a few pics from my old car's output, as well as some shots of my angel eyes and stuff.

The following pictures are OEM AL projectors originally from a 2002 325i that I retrofitted onto my old car. I modded them with ZKW-R lenses, and also played with the highbeam coding. As far as I knew, the bulbs (Osram 66040) were original, so at the time of the pictures they were about 8 years old.

Here is a shot from when I was modding the projectors w/ ZKW-R lenses. Left is modded, right is stock.

Lowbeam garage shot of both projectors modded (pic was taken months later)

Bixenon highbeams

Halogen highs *without* bixenon shutters enabled

Bixenon & Halogen highs simultaneously.

My old car (god this picture makes me wish I got the M3 in Imola...)

My M3 has mostly the same lighting setup. The HIDs came with the car, but are the same otherwise. I installed OEM ZKW lenses instead of ZKW-Rs (they fit in the lens holder much better). I also have Osram 66240CBI bulbs (3400 Lumens @ 5000K). Honestly, I don't know if the lighting differences would show up in pictures. My camera isn't charged at the moment anyway, so we won't find out 'til later ><
