oh my...
what kind of warranty are they offering you? Because, I know for a fact that these "ebay" angel eyes cost around $90USD at the most.............sold directly from Racing Dash, LTD. in Taiwan

All I know is I got mine from Bimmian. The Titanium extra thick rings for $137 from a msrp of $250

These are really nice. Comparing these to other halos, these are much thicker and are more noticeable.

Wiring was straight forward. No issues and the 6000k is not bad either. It matches the color of my zenons. It isn't too blue nor too yellow. It's a perfect white light with a blue tint (zenon color)

P.S. btw, you're right about needing to bake your headlights as you're a facelift coupe. I also had to do this. It's not difficult after the first time =] just take your time doing it, all will be ok! OH, and when you buy a kit, make sure it's for your facelift coupe, as FL coupes have different angel eyes (full circles as opposed to partial circle rings)
What is ment by a facelift coupe??

Facelift Coupe is a 03 and on 3-series coupes (non-m3) These cars have a sealed headlight that can only be opened by baking the headlight to soften the glue.

actually...facelift for sedans are from 2003 on
facelift for coupes however was from 2004 on
and then there are different engines JUST in the US market (M54 vs. M56 motors; ULEV vs. SULEV respectively)
also, there are different PIN mirrors, etc. such as 6-PIN, 12-PIN, and ribbon connectors
these are among just some of the minor differences JUST between facelifts..pre-facelift vs. facelift is an entirely different story

darn Germans
they just hafta make everything complicated

I am thinking about getting the Predator Chromium kit, but am not willing to bake my headlights. Can anyone tell me if my car has sealed headlights? Thanks

M3 headlights do not need to be baked. Only facelifted coupes.

No. Only E46 that requires baking is facelifted coupes (one piece headlight). If you have separate corner lights, then you don't need to bake.

How can I wire them to turn on when the cornering lights are on via turning the headlight knob?

Instructions to Fit Angel Eyes

I tapped into my corner light bulb so it flickers twice when i unlock the car but i still went into the ECU as well so it is on when the car is running. If you just tap into the corner light, the angel eyes will only turn on once you turn the corner lights on. Up to you if you wanna constantly run your corner lights on. Hope this helps
