Hi Buddy

cheapest option is to buy from Pelican Parts in the USA they ship to your front door in 1-2 weeks and they are trust worthy.

A serial masturbator, who gets off on annoying the good people of the world. I believe he has a sheep fetish also.

im pretty sure ur M3 would have them standard, you can check if you have the headlight washing system. look underneath your headlights in that plastic bit above ur bumper. if there is a trapezium sort of shape cut out it means you have the washing system and that it came from the factory with xenons. to check if u still have xenons installed, switch your lights on, if it takes 10sec or so to reach max brightness u have xenons. they will also be whiter than halogens and alot brighter. you would have a ballast which powers them under the hood but im not sure where it goes exactly.

And I believe zenons also have a longish thin stick like globe compared to the standard rounder bulgy look of halogens.

I just found out my new baby's km reading has been wound back. Not happy.


How much do you guys reckon is a good price for a pair of headlights, complete with xenons and angel eyes?

How? I thought the BMW DMEs and clusters were tamper proof... knowing that yes, anything can be hacked but still this would not be something easily done.

I remember that Mark325 has done a lot of work around this...

No idea. My BM mechanic said there's a tool that is easy enough to get that allows people to do it?
Not happy though..

It's not tamper proof. Basically it will only show you that it has been tampered with.

Me mechanic said he had the same thing with a vert not long ago. They went through consumer affairs and they found the guy who rolled it back. He got sent to the slammer for six months.
