Then maybe you can't afford a BMW.

Thanks for the reply. What can be done about the problems with the emission system? Is this something that an extended warranty will take care of and you just not worry about?

Right now $675 for the headlights and another $100 for the harness and connectors.
I'm going to have to probably put down another $150 for the Bosch projector bowls that I will have to retrofit.

I just bought some OEM ZKW's and the projector bowls are completely messed up.
What are my options? Would a recall benefit me?

I think the projector bowls are totally shot. I put one in, the halogen is significantly brighter than the xenon. Unless there is some warmup required.
