Mein Auto: 325 CI
Projector Headlights

Hey all looking to put some HID headlights on my 02 325ci but i'm hearing I must get Projector Head light housing first.

1. is there a way just to buy the housing with out purchasing a whole new headlight? If so how?
2. If not does anyone have or know of anyone selling any headlights?

You can either buy the projectors themselves and retrofit them into your existing headlights, this will save you a lot of money but you will need to get your hands dirty with some work.

If you're like me and are very DIY-unfriendly, then just pay extra to have a brand new pair of headlights. If money isn't an issue then you can even get DEPOs and ship them to a retrofit company like Umnitza and they will increase your light output by retrofitting even more powerful projectors/ballasts in there.
