u dont really need to buy stuff at umnitza, its over priced. you can buy the same stuff from apexcone!

http://www.ddmtuning.com/headlights.html

if you price everything, it comes out to just under 500 bucks shipping will be another 50$



p.s thats where i got my headlights and angel eyes

Bimmian will help you at a great price. And he's Local.

hey ddm tuning

hey, Im very interested in ordering those e46 depo headlights... It says there for 00-03 coupe all m3.. That obviously means all 3 series as well as m3s correct? Would you guys suggest upgrading to 55w ballasts also the DDE CCFL option? Also it says lamin-x would you guys suggest this and do these head lights come with fog lights or can I buy some somewhere like the ones in that signature on that silver car..What options on the headlights do you have in that signature I really like the way they look. Thanks

Go to BIMMIAN and call the number you see

I got all this for 650 and picked it up at the warehouse. You could probably get cheaper since your car is a pre facelift.

Predator Chromium Angel eyes
Projectors
And Xenoflow HID




As for the pic of that silver car, that car belongs to e34werks on e46 fanatics. IF you want those fog lights you need to buy the mtech 2 bumper and I think those Headlights are from Jlevi Street Werks but made by Umnitza. Id stay away, Just ask Mikeee46coup about his experiences with them.

#1. 55W ballasta are brighter
#2 CCFL is the technolgy used to make the Angel Eyes, which are the rings that glow inside the headlight - if you want the rings then yes u want this option
#3. Lamin-x is a flexible plastic sheet that goes on top of the glass to protext it from rock chips, GET THIS regardless of which vendor u buy ur headlights at. 1 big rock to the headlights and its possible they will crack (not likely but still)

no comments on the foglights


so remember there are several components
1. the projector headlight itself
2. the angel eyes which shud be CCFL
3. the HID which goes inside the projector and delivers brighter light

I bought mine straight from Umnitza, and they're my favorite mod by far!! Love these lights! A sponsor on here in Montreal (I think?) can get em for you too. Corner73, main guys name is Karim. www.corner73.com I've had mine for 2 years now, and they've been great, even though one bulb is kinda flaky right now, but thats the first wrinkle in 2 years, daily driven all winter, etc. Might just be a loose wire too, and more install-related than product-related.

Yes we carry the Projector46 at www.corner73.com.

They are on special at CAN$700. The HID system (you choose the K color) and CCFL angel eyes are included.

http://www.corner73.com/product_info...roducts_id=207

Probably cheaper than anywhere in the US. Keep in mind that the DDM lights (the exact same as ours BTW) will end up costing $760 when you factor in shipping, taxes, brokerage, duty, exchange fee...

Also, be careful with 55w ballasts. The projector housing can melt because of the high heat output.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Karim.

like i tell everyone, 55w ballasts are pointless.
