BMW E46 ZKW Headlights

Hello guys!

I know that maybe there are other threads on this subject, but I hope that you could help me on this problem with a new solution.

I own a E46 facelift model, sedan, 2004 and have the same old problem regarding the bi-xenon projectors. I came across online a company that has on sale original Bosch/AL projectors. The problem is that I am a bit confunsed with the fitting. The sales responsable at that company, can barely say a phrase in english and I didn't get as much information as I would expect.

From what I found out, some say that the Bosch projector will fit, others that there is no chance in hell to make them fit.

Please help me out and tell me if they can really fit. If yes, how can I make them fit in the ZKW headlight? Or in the worst case, could you recommend me something else?

Until now, I had all kind of solutions, for aftermarket projectors but to fit them in, I would have to drill holes in the headlight, or add additional wires...and the thing is that I want to keep my car OEM and can't afford new Bosch headlights.

No, apparently I missed that thread. It's a great one and in my case, the best solution to keep my headlights original and without any complicated China stuff.

Thanks tommy_d!
