My Ride: 02' 325xi 5spd.
Advice: Ebay Headlights..I know

Guys,

Looking to replace my headlights for my 02 325xi. Recently bought the car used, higher mileage but runs great. I want to change a few things cosmetically, and don't want to go broke on headlights alone. The stock OEM ones have condensation buildup and need new lenses. I've sanded them down, but just going to replace the both headlights all together. Here is the link to the ebay headlight item. Not my first or second option, but like I said I have other things I want to replace soon.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/380699657753...witem=&vxp=mtr

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.

If you wanted a Honda you should have bought one , don't make a fine German auto into a rice car.

NO, simply NO.

Get new lenses from khoalty.com

Do you have projectors or halogen lights?
