You can retrofit OEM BMW xenons into your car but for the price, you might as well go with our Projector46 headlights which is a complete headlight replacement kit that swaps out your stock halogens for Projector based xenons with built in Predator series angel eyes. This will achieve the same output and setup as a factory headlight retrofit but at a fraction of the cost and is backed by our full lifetime warranty. Installation is plug and play and includes everything you need. Here is the product page for more information:

With xenons its around $700. Its worth every penny. You have to pick your car model and if you want xenons or not. Everyone on this board will tell you to get p46's its a good choice, listen to nick.

If you look at the product page, $299 is just for the headlights. Xenons are an extra $260 and the angel eyes are an extra $109. If you have a 2002-2005 sedan, it is also an extra $50.

Not the P46s, but the quality is pretty good.

We use our ProLumen HID components for the P46's so in terms of quality, you get a similar kit to an OEM setup. Our components are backed by our full lifetime warranty as well.

hey nick, sorry to threadjack n2bimmer, but i was wondering if say you only had enough money for the p46 so far. so you want to run halogens in it for a while until you have money for the HID prolumen kit.

can we do that? disadvantages?

Sure that's not a problem. You can just purchase the P46's with the halogen option and get the ProLumen or Piccolo kit later to add on.
