Lightbulb FS: OEM BMW Facelift Bi-Xenon Headlights

I have 2 used FULL SETS (both Left and Right side headlights) for sale.

These will fit FACELIFT (2002-2005) BMW E46 3-Series SEDANS.
Additional vehicle coding may be needed (not provided) if upgrading from Stock Halogens to these Bi-Xenons.
These are a direct replacement for anyone that already has or had AL Brand BMW Bi-Xenons that need replacement, and a great upgrade for anyone that has Halogens.

Local buyers preferred, I don't mind shipping - but it looks like it will probably cost about $50-60. Buyer pays shipping costs.

--------------------
Bi-Xenons SET A: SOLD
- Drivers side top mounts were repaired (but perfectly good now)
- Drivers side projector lense has a flaw (almost not noticeable and does not affect functionality)
- Outer lenses are in great condition, very clear
- Comes w/ the spring/screw for corner signals
- Supposed to be all-black inserts, but inner is titanium and outer is black (I have outer titanium trim to match also)
- Minimal wear and tear
- Fully working order! (Tested working, Hi-beams, Low-beams, Flash to pass)
- THE BULBS ARE INCLUDED! (2) OE H7 bulbs, and (2) OE PHILIPS D2S BULBS

Pictures, Set A:


Video, Set A:


--------------------
Bi-Xenons SET B: $425 + shipping
- Lenses on these have some pitting and minor burn-in
- Drivers side corner signal mount was repaired with an o-ring, fits and works well
- does not come w/ spring/screw for corner signals (you can re-use your old ones)
- Passenger side wiring was done to make the high-beam shutter work properly (previous owner did this - all I know is everything works properly so I didn't mess with it)
- On the inside of the drivers projector chrome bezel, some of the chrome was wiped off - you can't really see it unless you're looking for it.
- Tested working!
- BULBS ARE INCLUDED! (2) H7 bulbs, and (2) D2S Xenon BULBS

Pictures, Set B:

Not that I know of.. but I have to say, it is indeed very sharp compared to others I've seen (better than the ones on my own car).

Ok Solidjake - you got me curious, so I went and took pictures..

The shots are taken looking directly into the projector lense, with a flashlight pointed into the projector to illuminate the inside. The focus point is on the RV shield itself. You should be able to tell the set on my car is different because I spray painted the projector bezels black (aka Chris Brown mod thread/which I learned about from DTMdan and his awesome car).

Here are the shots I got:
  • 9118: Set A, driver's RV Shield
  • 9117: Set A, passenger's RV Shield
  • 9120: My car, driver's RV Shield
  • 9123: My car, passenger's RV Shield

The RV shield looks like it's mounted the same to me (Set A vs. My car), but I did notice that the lenses on Set A look very clear compared to mine. They look more.. optically clear? as opposed to being a little cloudier like the ones on my car.

Hmm, it might be that. I never really looked into the lense of my projectors. I'll check it out tomorrow.

heh, neither did I - until you asked about the cutoff and I started thinking about how to look at the shield without dismantling the headlights..
