just a little word of wisdom. if you (e46 fanatic) plan on converting your lights from halogen to Bi-xenon make sure you purchase the housing that is for the bi-xenon model. if you dont heavy modding will be needed. and it wasnt fun. but i know have xenons.....

That's weird - both my outer mounts (halogen and bi-xenon) were exactly the same part. They both looked like the white plastic one. Is one of those an aftermarket reflector?
