E46 facelift 320i - xenon upgrade?
 
I think i'm to use to having xenon's on all my car's is there a way I can install either a HID kit in OEM headlight's? or get a projector headlight's and install an HID kit without tripping some kind of fault? Anyone have any idea's? I tried searching but found nothing concrete!

I don't need the leveling or bi xenon's just low beam is good enough but something that won't cause a dummy light lol

Just find a pair of projector headlights from one of the sponsors and you won't get any errors

eurostyle should be able to hook you up.

A pair of OE xenons is plug and play ... they the plug into the OE bulb sockets and all it fine.

Ya but my headlight's are the halogen type, so I would have to get oem xenon headlight's and bulbs/ballast's, not sure how this exactly goes together on the BMW I don't need the bi-xenon's/leveling because for that you most likely need programming and screwing around with wiring etc.

You need nothing except the complete headlight assembly. The balast and everything else is integrated ... just plug it in and it works. I swapped with a guy for halogens (I wanted halogens to save weight) and he just plugged them in and was good to go.

Really? the ballast's are integrated in each headlight also? I guess I will need the non bi-xenon's correct?

Some cars will show a error after xenon upgrade, but we can flash the LCM to accept the xenon , and no errors will be on the cluster!

For your case I will recommend an aftermarket company called DEPO.

Do a search on DEPO E46 headlights.

Reason why? because they are very cheap, great quality and they are NEW.

Reason why I DONT recommend buying from one of the sponsors :
-WAY TOOOOOO expensive
-No matter what you get they will still be 6-11 years old, just like E46 itself and they will most likely look like a 11 year old headlight too.

I have another recommendation for you, move over to E46fanatics.com, mAx is filled with E36 guys, there aint no help for E46 here AT ALL.
