Uh, is it that hard? Instructions seem pretty straight forward.

Took me an hour. There is little to no wiring. It's mostly plug and play.

Check out our list of Authorized Installers on our website under installation resources. There are plenty within the tri-state area.

No baking on any angel eye kits for the E46 Only the facelift coupes require baking.

What do you think would be a fair price to have the predator chromiums installed on a face lift coupe that require the headlights to be baked???????

I had to bake the headlights for my R1 to install CCFl Angel Eyes. It's really not as ad as it seems. Basically it's less than 10 minutes @ 250 just to melt the glue. After you pull them ouf of the oven you just pull the two pieces of the light apart.

Hope that helps.

For baking, most of our installers charge between $150-200.

I was shafted back in the day for $300+
needless to say, I'm not doing business with them anymore (I even gave them a chance and continued giving them business...and then they focked it all up again)...
