if you have a FACELIFT coupe then yes, because your headlights are sealed.

^ all headlights are sealed. that's how they keep water out. the difference is whether they use glue or clips

Like it has been said before, you need to get the glue softened up..

You can use the oven or a heat gun, I don't know anything about using one though

Noob needs help!

Hey guys i got my facelift coupe 04' plate 318ci M Sport Black 2 weeks ago and i have already gone mad modifying it. i have debadged the lump on the back all my badges have been changed to carbon fiber the kidney grilles have been changed to black shadow and i finished my angels today....i thought.

I followed the guide which by the way is excellent! but i used a heat gun rather than the oven. When heating the black plastic and wedging it apart with a screwdriver i ended up slightly remoulding it but this isn't the worst part......when i sealed everything back up i found that i left smudge marks in the lense so this means i have to separate everything again and the in headlight there's condensation the question is will it come apart if i reheat without damaging the headlight?

Also how does everyone's headlight fit in underneath the trim where the headlight washer and the bumper is. is there a gap so you can put finger between it slighty?


Thanks appreciate the help!

I have gaps all around but not so big.. on of my headlights is slightly more in, and I have a larger gap on one side and not the other..

No idea of coupon codes, haven't really shoped from them.. But you can either, "Ask a sponsor," look out for Sponsor deals, or wait till somebody will part out their EEs and sell them for a lower price..

Ok today i got from umnitza angel eyes predator orion v2 for facelift coupe.



For start u need this drill:



Then u need make this on silver big circle:






And this on where angel eyes must fit:





Then your angel eyes harness will be in good place.





UPDATED....




Now next part, u will need some "super moment' or other glue....



Then take glue and take a walk around the big silver circle with it:



Then leave for some 10mins...


To be continued...
