New Project in need of guidance

Recently picked up an 08' pre lci 328i 4dr Alpine white on Lemon interior
mods to come as well as picks
30% tint all around
M3replica Front Bumper with vorsteiner lip
Vmr 710's front 19x8.5/rear 19x9.5
m-tech rear bumper with diffuser
swapping out the interior silver trim for piano black( DIY )

Seeking advice on what to do with the front headlights. Ive heard a lot of the projector lights suffer from water leaking issues. Im not taking the cheap approach by covering the orange side markers on the factory headlights. Any suggestions on what brand of headlight to swap to ect?

hahaha, I'm the same boar, hate the ambers, but I'm looking for a budge approach, don't want to swap the lamps, just want the amber away from my life

Check out Umnitza for choices. Just ordered a bunch of stuff and found their customer service excellent. Ask for Tim.
Any leaking with headlights would be from installing them incorrectly - breaking seals at the glass from being over torqued or forced in to place.

I did two things to my headlights:

1. Purchased LUX Angel eyes, best lights for your car...you will love them.
2. Coded the amber lights to stay off unless indicating a turn. I hate the ambers as well, but I dont mind them if they stay off. Looks great at night with just the white HID's.
