People have good and bad things to say about the DJ Auto lights. I have depo and they are great. I paid $400cnd inclusing shipping and duty once it got to my door. They are the ones with angel eyes. I guess it depends on where you get yours from and if they have angel eyes too?

ask how they deal with warranty. you might get a lemon 1 out 10. ZKWs or Bosch (basic) go for about $700-$800cdn.

DJ Auto/Depo/InPro all the same headlight. Their biggest problem is that lens is plastic, so it can melt.

ZKW is going for 395USD right now, and I really suggest you to get that(I had both DjAuto and then switched to ZKW)

I think you misunderstood me.

The front protective lens (rectangular part) is glass, but there are 2 lenses inside(highbeam and low beam) of the headlight, they are plastic.

do they always melt or is there a good chance of them melting?

I have depo's............no bad things to say about them here. Probably would get ZKW's though if I had the cash......

ZKW/Hella ARE stock headlights. Just in Europe.

Not always, but mine did.

Stock BMW North American headlight has plastic inner lenses.

Stock BMW (rest of the world) (they are two types of them ZKW and BOSCH) are glass.


ZKW/Hella ARE stock headlights. Just in Europe.

They are ZKW or BOSCH for E36 headlights. Hella makes aftermarket headlights for e36(wierd looking ones with small angel eyes)
