"not enough cash" + "e46" don't go well together.

As long as they are the same style as the one's you have now. (facelift or pre-facelift). And if your car already had Xenons installed from the factory then yes they will work. However, if your car had halogen low beams than you need Halogen headlights.

Kilix19980, can you link me to the lights you have and the lights you would like to install? I just did a retrofit last weekend. If I could read/write Lithuanian I would communicate that way, alas I can only speak it

Honestly, skip the eBay lights. Save up the cash and do it right with the retrofit. It's honestly not that expensive but if money is tight save up for them.

I agree, it just depends on what he is looking to do first. 175 dollars + getting stuff imported can be nutty for him. We have it easy in the US.

Yea and the money you spend on those crap eBay lights is the majority of what you will spend on a home made setup

The kit you listed is missing the ballasts.

Even a used set of original Bosch xenon/bixenon projectors will be better than a generic kit.
