WTB: Projector Bowls for ZKW retrofit

I've been reading and apparently either AL xenons or the E90 ZKW xenons will work...

I have an 04 Sedan with auto-leveling bixenon. I need some good bowls to replace as mine are badly burnt. Please PM or reply with what you've got and a price. Pictures also please! Thanks...

I recently purchased a pair from ebay and have not yet installed them. Here's the vendors "last pair" listed now. Shipping took a long time - 3 weeks, but they look like they will work fine. Good luck.

Thanks... Those look good, but it looks to be the same part that's currently in the car, so most likely the same problem will appear soon enough. Also, it says they're compatible with D1S bulbs... I thought the bixenon bulbs were D2S??

Can someone clarify?

The e90 bowls are coated metal instead of plastic. They are also a different bulb socket but according to what I've read it's possible to make it work by bending the retainer.

The thread I've used for guidance on this is here.

The E90 bowls are set-up for D1S bulbs. But as stated do some retrofitting and they will accept D2S bulbs. I have some AL projectors if you want to go that route. Send me a PM if so. Here is a set-up I did with the E90 bowls.
