They are mine :) Guess I could have at least cleaned the bugs off my car before the car show.


Anyway they are BMW Ellipsoids. Trim the tabs off the back of the lights to make their shape more like a normal headlight. Next enlarge the hole in the back of the headlight bucket and mounting bracket so the BMW headlight will fit.


They are 5.25" so your stock retaining rings will, uh... retain them.


As far as the HID conversion.... that takes a little more doing.

3-series I would guess. 1989-92 only?


The left headlight as you can tell is a projector housing. that is the low beam.

The other side is also BMW but you can use your factory high beam if you want... or Mercedes yellow fog light or other such creative setup.


The HID requires the proper HID bulb for that housing and the HID ballast.

this website would be your best friend, just dont get a HID "kit" if you search hard enough you just might find someones 510 with hid's ;) (not mine though)http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/index.php and read lots before you do anything..


the smileys are cooler lookin, and they have the city light feature, but im guessing theyre the same, besides the fact that the german ones are longer..


i paid alot less then 588$ too

The "smiley" is a full Ecode light as opposed to the DOT light Green Bastard has. The Ecode light is MUCH better then a DOT light, my wife's Mitsubishi suffers DOT lights and I find them awful. I might add that DOT projectors are still better then DOT reflector lights.
