Headlight upgrade

Hey guys I have a 01 330i and I wanted to upgrade the headlights (possibly taillights) and I wanted to get a smoke type look. Just wanted to know if there was a website that is best for it.

For the corner lights, side markers and tail lights check out our sponsors at the top of the page. For projector headlights click on projector retrofit in my sig.

Why would you smoke your head lights and tail lights when;

1) The maintenance on the car is quite likely seriously lacking

and two

3) Its otherwise N/A -- or do you have an ESS supercharger on there?

As of three months ago, it definitely wasn't "top end".

There are countless people that have skipped maintenance on these cars and go straight to visual mod questions, etc. So don't jump down the throats of people that have seen it hundreds of times, and are playing the odds that the question might be asked by someone who might not have taken those into consideration first. Or perhaps they HAVE seen your other threads already and have made their comments based on what's been said already? Take a breath, and read what SJ advised, as that is the best advice you'll find on the question you asked.

Headlight upgrade

So you've replaced

- CCV
- bushings and control arms
- coolant system refresh
- shocks and struts
- disa seal
- ofhg seal
- vanos seals
- valve cover gasket
- spark plugs
- trans oil
- rear diff oil

If not -- you've got better stuff to spend your money on. If you choose to ignore said advice, realize in the future when something on your car breaks and you start *another* "oh my gawd plz help ASAP" threads -- myself and others will mock and make fun of your shamelessly.
