Depending on the final price, I would steer you to find and at least consider the Hella HID/xenon kits that include reflectors. They sell 2 diameters. Not sure if one matches the Z3. The kit comes with reflectors, ballasts, and bulbs. You would have to cut the low beam reflector out of your stock headlights and glue in the new Hella one. The trick is Hella does not sell these kits in the US so someone would have to get you a Euro one. You may find pics at http://www.hella.de but it is not easy to navigate. I suspect the HID4less guys are basically going to do the same thing... cut and glue. The question is can you do a better job than them. My guess is you can.

Not worth the trouble in my opinion, but never say never I guess.

Well, I'm really signing up to get the info. I think that if they do a true projector style with the different lens et al, it may be a worthwhile purchase. If all they are doing is a different reflector, then it may be another story.

I'm not in the immediate market to upgrade to HID's, but if it is an attractive enough incentive, well

JonM great advice and i will take it comming from you, ill prob wait till the item is made and i can get my hands on one and inspect the quality and design, i emailed them to be added to the list but i also explained that if its not very high quality parts and materials and also a well built unit that im NOT intrested at all..
but like you said we will see, if it goes south ill be talking with you and andy about which kit will best fill my need and and get it from leathez..
but at any rate im just waiting till $$$ starts growing in my wallet again bussiness is not so good right now here in texas
thanks again for the advice you all have a great week
