no X5.
They already have projectors, at least most of them do.
It's connected in the back via a 9006 female adapter for the low beams. The high beams require some "work" to fit your existing H7 bulb into it, it's nothing really, just a little extra pressure, aside from that, the whole system is completely plug and play.

i must say guys and gals that just as some one that has seen them in person (thats my car in the pic by the way) that they are a GREAT product the fit is flawless and they definatly clean up the front end of the car. if you get these belive me i do not think you will be disapointed. but i would not get the chrome trim cuz its way to shiny (and kinda cheap looking in my opinion) unless you are into that anyways great product and great price

by the way if any one would like to ask me of my opinion of what i thought of these you are more then welcome to ask but my opinion of these is very high incase you cant guess

yeah, just have to "show" how the projectors work and unfortunately, I'm also working on getting better quotes for the OEM ones as well, which may only be $150 more than the non-OEM ones we'll be selling initially Ducks must be aligned

So these are not OEM?

Is it the projector only or the entire housing?

And how does E differ from A, no bulbs?

Projectors46 w/ DDE & 5000K HID: $799
Projectors46 w/ DDE & 6000K HID: $829
Projectors46 w/ 5000K HID: $649 <-- ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH EXISTING HALOS and you must have proof of purchase.
Projectors46 w/ 6000K HID: $679 <--- ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH EXISTING HALOS and you must have proof of purchase.
Projectors46 w/ DDE: $599

E has no HID
A has HID

This is the complete housing.

Sorry to keep asking dumb questions, but you mean E is a projector without HID? How would I use that?

You have a headlight.
It has a light bulb.

That light bulb can be halogen or it can be HID.

Your headlight may have a projector or may have a reflector.
If it has a reflector, you need a new housing that has a projector to take advantage (fully) of hids.

Umnitza: so if us halogen folks buy this from you, how tricky is the install? I've been looking for HIDs forever now but I don't have the balls or knowledge to do the eBay thing.

One more question:

I do not like phosphyres. I want the stock look of the DDE's. If I bought the non-DDE ones, with a set of Gen V DDE's, would that be cool?

Another question, are the ballasts fitted to the housing? Or are they seperate?

Another question: I have DDE Lightnings that I bought from you but haven't installed yet (non-enhanced). I assume there will be no fitment problems with em?

Alright, so let me get this strait. This GB is for aftermarket, not OEM projector (aka BiXenons) headlights with the Phosphyre halos preinstalled.
Option E is just normal halogen headlights with halos already installed.
The difference between A and B is simply a brighter bulb (with B being brighter).
This a simple DYI, simple being it is plug-and-play.
Correct me if I am wrong about anything above. I do have some questions though. Will these have auto-leveling capabilities? What are the difference between buying these versus OEM (aside from the fact these have the halos preinstalled), and the cheaper price ()?

Edits: More questions! Will there be a possible discount on price if we can come pick them up (versus paying shipping)? This kit still comes with everything we need to run a switch into our car so we can turn the halos on/off, right?
