Cool 06 e46 m3 headlights & Angel Eyes

Hey guys I'm new to the bmw gang.Recently purchased a 2006 e46 m3. The headlights have to be replaced. Where could I purchase one online with the best angel eyes? Please help send me a link. Don't want to end up buying cheap headlights online. Also what's a good bright angel kit on the market ?

Are you sure your headlight needs to be replaced? If its just hazy you can replace the outside lens.

If you do buy they're gonna be expensive but make sure you buy OEM replacement headlights don't go buy cheap Ebay brand with built in halos/angel rings.

Also Umnitza angel eyes are are good. Search and you shall see tons of threads and pics.

$200 headlights? ONE of my HALOGENS costs $250 at minimum and that was a DEAL! Buy OEM or nothing. There really is no such thing as a good quality light that is not OEM.

Go on eBay and see if you can find a used pair. Use RealOEM.com to find the correct part number. Make sure you aren't buying a sedan headlight, they are slightly different.

Also, why do the headlights need replacement??? Please answer this question.

Headlights don't come with angel eyes. Angel eyes are a modification that are added on

Okay. Then if you need lights some used ones are your best bet. Used halogens won't run you too much.

Get OEM lights only. If you get OEM halogens you can then retrofit in projectors (in my sig)
