WTB: Bosch AL headlight Insert

I'm looking for a set of the preface lift AL headlight inserts... its the insert with hi beam bowl and projector mounts. Its the part at the top of this pics. I need the insert only, not the projectors or shrouds

Let me know what you have. Painted is ok too.

Ive got AL single Xenon frames. The frame you have pictured is the Bi-Xenon frame. There are some subtle differences between the two. Most noteably the mounting holes are a little different and the high beam reflector is smooth vs the ribbed on the BiXenons.

So if you can use the single Xenons let me know.

I have a set. PM me with an offer. They are from an M3 coupe, but are the same as the regular coupe.

The mounting points are the same on single and bi-xenon.

No they're not, they used different projectors with differences in the pitch between mounting holes.
The 1999-2001 single low beam xenon projectors will not fit a 2002-2005 Bi-xenon projector frame and vice-versa.

True about the projector mounting. I should have been more specific I suppose. As I believe the question was in regards to attaching the insert to the housing. In which case the auto-leveling arm mounts the same and the insert attaches the same to the adjustment arms/screws on both inserts.
