Wtb/need oem headlights by monday!!

WTB OEM HEADLIGHTS FOR A 02 COUPE NYC AREA!!! NOW NOW NOW!!! IDK IF ITS TG DAY ;-)

I have a homie of mine that has a dealers license. Shortly after I got my 325ci in sept he managed to pick up another crashed 325ci same friggin yr at "the auction" its a front and rear ender though! He said he had planned to use it for parts for another coupe he was scheming on to buy, but didn't get through with. Whatever I want/wanted on the car I could swap out. The only thing worthy was a few of the alarm system components.
Here's the thing, he's getting rid of it by monday, sending it back to the auction. However he wants it visibly in almost the same condition as far as headlights. The ones that are in there have everything I want/need: Projectors, bulbs, HID kit, halos etc. I want to gut them out and put them in my headlight housing ans wire it up!

The EFFFIN problem is the headlights from the crashed car has bad/effed up clips, one of them had a zip tie at the bottom where a screw was missing. ANNNNND who ever had the lights/car before GLUED THE PHUKIN LIGHTS SHUT!! some type of silicone!!! the corners were screwed in.

The thing is I don't mind swapping my lights but the housing on the other lights are SHOT to SH!T So i need to get my hands on a pair of oem lights by monday to put back on/with the crashed car before the flatbed comes back around for her!

I'll repost this in the NY area chat shortly.

good luck. try the classified ads on here or sometime if you have a lot of patience you can score a great deal on ebay for a brand new pair (like I did). Just be careful with ebay cuz you have to know exactly what you are buying. I got a pair of AL bi-xenon (facelift for sedan) for $500

Thanks, I was trying to avoid that route though. This alternative would be super cost effective if I get the regular lights.

FYI those are cheap eBay projectors, even worse than Depo projector headlights. You'll get more light output with OEM reflectors.

+1 once you said they were glued shut I immediately thought, these must be ebay projectors, since i had ones on my old m3 that were the same way.

Shell out $300 for DEPO's if you're looking for a nice light upgrade without breaking the bank, if you want some serious badass lights, contact Caesar from Lightwerks.

Lol Thanks... only 300? but let me say this, i'm a bit new to bimmer culture and whats really "poppin". I've seen quite a # of fellas here clowning DEPO's so i thought geez i may have to hold out and get some premium 800 sheeit! or the OEM versions. so Depos are cool(ish) you're saying? and does this Caesar have a web site to browse?

I think last time I looked the depo's were around that price range. They're not the best, but I'd say they work. Obviously going OEM is the better choice.

But anyway, check out lightwerkz, he's the best for sure. - http://www.lightwerkz.net/
