im starting the cosmetic makeover phase...figured these can be a good place to start no?

the price seems ok, not the best deal though. I am not a fan of those headlights at all, they look really cheap. And those corner lights are butt ugly in my opinion.

If I were you I'd look for something like this:
http://cgi.ebay.ca/92-99-BMW-E36-2D-...QQcmdZViewItem

but get them from a seller that is cheaper these are pretty much the same price as you could get them from www.umnitza.com, I've sen them go for about $200 on ebay. I'd just go with a straight up normal clear corner lights instead of those ricerish ones that are in the other link you posted.

the look may be played out since everyone has them but they suit the car and looked awesome.

ya i wasnt really digging the corners to say the truth...the ones on umnitza are kinda expensive no?
im in love with the angel eyes i dont care if they're played out lol!

hey i noticed ur from windsor?

I've had Depo...the first generation and look quite similar to those in your ebay link.
They look cheap with that ribbed bezel and the rings are even worse.
IMO, they have no place on a BMW.
I would save up and buy some Hella or Bosch. I don't think Bosch include AE's, but the Hella do. I have a pair and they make the E36 look classy and updated.
At night you can't tell it's not a newer series.
ZKW aren't a bad choice either.

GL with your decision.

WARNING!!! DO NOT buy from RedcometM3

he is a scumbag seller. It took me over 15 business days to receive my items from him. And thats just from California to Florida. I can only imagine worse to Canada. He gives no customer service. Does not reply to emails.

So 3 weeks after i paid...im sitting here thinking i got ripped off, and he olny responded after i threaten to file a claim with paypal and leave him negative feedback.

If you must purchase on ebay, avoid this seller

Edit: if you search on bf.c, you'll see many other people have had problems, and even been ripped off by this guy.

We have the Depo projector headlights plus angel eyes and we are located in Montreal. *smoke*

At least with us you don't have to worry about brokerage fees, currency exchange fees, duty... *th-up*

Ebay is a good place, but only buy DEPO (gen IV) or ZKW or bosch. Stay away from everything else trust me. I found a pair of DEPOs a few months ago and won the auction with 8 seconds left at $170USD shipped I think.

Also, you might see that some depos have projectors (the ball-like thing in the low beams) and some come with reflectors. The easy way to tell them apart are that the projectors use H1 bulbs and the ones with reflectors use H7 bulbs. Most people prefer the projectors.
