Looking for ZKW headlight

hey guys,

anybody knows where I could get a headlight for my car? PN as shown at realoem is 63128363079

So pretty hard to find on ebay since apparently that headlight is only used by bmw 325i coupe from 05-1994 to 09-1994...

any ideas?

thanks friends

All E36 headlights are the same. They are universal no matter the model or year AS LONG AS is it an E36 headlight. That means a headlight from a 318ti is the same as an M3 and is also the same as 325i.

Except that he's in Argentina, so he's probably looking for a genuine projector setup, rather than the US spec lights.

Agreed. Just letting him know that no matter what ZKW/DEPO/DJ Auto (projector) setup he finds or chooses will fit as long as it is made for an E36 and not Date/model specific within the generation of the 3 series.

Yes I have an Euro model. The headlights have glass instead of plastic (like US version). But well, I seen euro headlights on ebay with different part number than the ones that goes for my car, so u giys saying that is the same headlight anyways?

Thanks!

It will fit, but the beam pattern might not be the same as what you need in Argentina.

Most of us are in the USA, so there's not much advice to give. Vehicles usually have specific laws per country for headlights.
