If your ride has projectors then just get the halos.

I have the whole kit from Bimmian for 1.5yrs now and they are running strong. Great quality.

$1300?!?! That price sounds way wrong. I paid less than a grand for my P46s, directly from Umnitza. And they are HIDs, so why would you be worrying about converting to xenons later? Projector46s are already xenons.

I paid either $800 or $850 USD (can't remember exactly), ordered directly from Umnitza. When I ordered, the exchange rate was excellent and I ended up paying less than a grand CDN. This was for both sides, 2 complete headlight assemblies with Xenons and Angel Eyes built in. I had to pay more to get it installed (it wasn't exactly simple due to the LCM reflash), but $1300 for just the parts is MUCH too high a price. I wouldn't spend an extra $300 just to order in Canada.

EDIT: mine didn't come with Xenesis matching halogen bulbs. Is that price installed or something? Maybe Bimmians come with a resistor kit that eliminates the need for LCM reflash?

Oh yeah, I had halogens when I bought my P46s. I don't see why you'd even consider P46s if you already have Xenons.

What about buying them from us

The exact same product for much cheaper. Plus you won't be screwed by UPS and customs.

Karim: he said he has the same car I do, which is a facelifted sedan (2002+). Your headlights says only 99-01 for sedans. You don't have em for facelifts?

Maybe the OP should clarify. He said he had the same car as me, but maybe he meant 320i? Not sure. I know if I had to buy em again, I'd definetly buy em in Canada from you guys, as long as the service was there and you take care of your customers if the stuff arrives damaged, etc. :thumbup:
