....no way i can just stick a halogen bulb in that housing huh? :p




anyway, er... how much would it cost to get the xenon bulbs and the ballasts ? And if i end up getting it, is it hard to switch to xenons ?



has anyone tried converting their halogen headlamps to xenons ?





...man i wish i had xenons.....but i still love my car :thumb:

If you want xenons, your best bet is to buy the xenons from bekkers.com. It is the entire BMW E46 xenon light kit (OEM).

This would include the ballast, the bulbs and the projector housing. Your dealer will also need to reprogram the car's computer so that it recognizes the xenons (otherwise the bulb out indicators will light up for both headlights).

If I remember correctly, each ballast is about $300. Each bulb is about $150.
