so i've been searching around for HID companies and i finally found a company that sold their HID kits for $175 shipped with 1 year warrenty on the bulbs, and a lifetime warrenty on the balasts...so i got a couple friends together and emailed the company and said "what kind of deal will you give me if i order 5 sets of HID's from you?". the company emailed me back and said $125 for the kits and $25 shipping for all the kits. SWEET!!! I called the company up, ordered 5 sets of HID's ($130 per person). ordered a set for my 328is, and a set for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I put the set in my jeep and BMW last night and they look amazing. i will post pics both cars later...

....thought i would share this with everone....

wow, $150, or even $175 for HID? tell us if it is actually good! On the other hand, not only
do you risk getting pulled over more, you risk getting flicked off more! I know I hate seeing someone come up behind me with s u p e r b r i g h t headlights!

On another note, we BMW drivers don't tend to stay behind other cars, so it shouldn't bother them for more than a few seconds :) lol

I decided against it; I'd rather not get the extra police attention. I just got some better headlights, 5000K 9006/9005 (low/high beams) 80/100W- 55W current draw 12V headlights; they're on the way. Just enough to fully utilize my projector headlights, which are also on the way :)

Plus, I don't think either LED, altezza, or Lexus-style taillights should be on a BMW. I got some fancier white-on-red taillights, but still maintained the E36 look. A BMW is not a Lexus or a Benz-- it's better, so it shouldn't look like one. That is demeaning, in my opinion. All my stuff is on the way right now.

I think HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights are great, but I would honestly be ticked off if you pulled up behind me. They really hurt my eyes.

Heres a picture of my car I think in December of last year with 9006 6000k HIDs. Made a mistake of ordering them before I got my projectors. So now i'll have to order H1 bulbs for my projectors when I get them. :(
