Headlights

Are there any aftermarket or depo E36 headlights that take the stock 9006 bulbs?

I think the stock Nfl's are around 175 each, your better off with a set of depo's with the h1 bulbs.

Its a pain but you could try and polish them. I belive eurostyle offers that service.

The optics are shit on the stock lights with 9006 bulbs. Since they don't have a projector they just scatter the light, if you put HIDs in them they still don't really light up very well (considering how well a good xenon setup is these days), they just blind everyone driving towards you.

I could sell you some replacement lights in H1 (bulbs, even HID ones, are just bulbs and will burn out eventually anyway).

Also, the focal point of 9006 and H1 bulbs is the same, you could (although i dont recommend it) cut the socket of your 9006 bulbs to make them fit H1 housings.
