Change to xenon

i have a 323ci convertible 2000w plate and i would like to know how easy it is to make some custom changes to the car like xenons is it as simple as changing the bulbs or is there an additional part to fit for the change over also i would like to change my rear lights for some L.E.D ones and maybe my front light panels too to go with the xenon headlights i just put some nice new khan alloys on it and had all the springs renewed now i want to make it stand out even more but dont know how as it is gold in colour and hard to imagine what i could do any top tips for me please...

Get some P46 projectors. It's a whole housing swap that has projectors as well as angel eyes built in. You can LED tails for $175 from the sponsors.

Hi there,

We offer the Projector46 Package which would be a complete headlight replacement that swaps out the entire housing for projector based xenons with built in angel eyes. This is the easiest and most comprehensive upgrade if you are looking to upgrade to xenons.

For the tail lights, I recommend a set of the Eagle Eyes LED Tails which are a plug and play upgrade over your existing tails to change them out for LEDs.

I highly suggest getting OEM headlights, They can be found here for a good price also. If you do decide to get the P46 Jlevis is the place to get them from.

These are designed so the end user can complete the installation. The Projectors will take about 2 hours and the tail lights are a 30 minute job.

I am not sure of any distributors in the UK specifically but we can ship to the UK if you need. You can also try contacting http://www.ca-automotive.co.uk

if you get the whole xenon kit, it is farely easy to install. Theire are several harnesses and connection to be made. but overall it is idiot proof ! the only complecated part is organizing evrything in the ngine bay. that's why some some P46 projectors. with whole housing swap that has projectors as well as angel eyes built in like ChrisTKHarris said, are a better option !
