My Ride: '99 328i 300K miles
I'm really serious about doing this very soon...I can't take my lights anymore...and I didn't read all 36 pages!

I looked at the kits, but haven't a clue what all I need or don't need. I'm oldstyle headlight, so at least can get my lens cover off with no problem...but from there, I'm really lost.

Can I do projector hids in a pre-facelift? Anyway, you lighting guys are speaking a language I haven't quite picked up on...all I can figure out is I need a projector, a bulb, and ballast...maybe some other electronic gizmo too...and then I need to get the car flashed...or is that optional?

Could I leave it as it is...have four bulbs on with high lights and have flash to pass as I am now? I have day time running lights too...if the flash is necessary, does that 'kill' the drl?
