Cool E46 Headlights

Hello fellow Bimmer enthusiasts,

I am having troubles on deciding what type of replacement headlights to get for my E46 323CI. Currently I have HID's installed, which isn't too terrible, however whoever installed these must have enjoyed strobe lights, seeing that they flicker for five or so seconds on initial start-up - which I assume is due to a wiring issue OR some rave kid's dream car. Regardless, I need some help. Any suggestions?

Much appreciated,

A-DubE46

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question over to the E46 3 series forum, you'll get more help in here.

Good luck,
Tim

E46 Headlights

Are your headlights halogen or the xenon projectors?

Theres alot of light options. Would recommend some projectors with Halo rings with clear corner lights.. Makes your car look new
