    I am in Oz, so not sure of legality, but the e36 does have a sharp cut off for low beam and electric adjustment. I would never go back to halogens. I also have H1 HID for highs, but do find they are not that good for flicking on an off as they take about 5 seconds to fully warm up. So buy some good halogens for the highs - when you look for them, forget about claims for brightest etc, colour temperature is what you want to know. The 6000K are the closest to daylight and will give an intense white light, with a tinge of blue.

    Look internationally and you will find them - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PIAA-...Q5fAccessories

    For fogs, you can go past a good set of H1 halogens with 3000K (yellow) colour temp.

    Post up some pics when you have finished.

    Hi Guy's 1st post so please be gentle.
    I thought id share my experience with various headlight set up's incase it may be of use.
    I upgraded to an aftermarket built in angel eye set about 18 months ago, i found the opinion about a 50/50 split on the appearance front. I liked them, however i found the light pattern too focused a bit like bicycle light even though aligned correctly. so upgraded the bulbs to some 50% brighter osram jobbies which inproved the output and made them more useable. i did consider fitting an HID kit to them as a seller in America was fitting the hid to the units and shipping complete so i know its do-able.
    Anyway i stuck with them, then the following winter i got condensation problems in one of the lenses. Fed up i dug the original lamps out and fitted Ebay Hid and ccfl kits, the difference is awsome. The angel eyes are visible even in summer daylight, and the quality of the hid light is far superior to previous. The real bonus is a stock look to the car which i find never gets boring.
    sorry to ramble, ill include pics (varying quality) to illustrate my text.
    Cheers guys

    i quite like the style of those, the only drawback is it might look better with a non chrome housing-i.e a black one, just like the original ones. could you post up a link of the ebay seller?

    cheers, J

    confirm with theheadlight seller that they take h1 bulbs
    I got my set from a private seller im afraid, but these ones look similar to mine. i also got my Hid from the other seller above. really good service, they replaced a faulty ballast quickly and offer a long warranty.
    And these are my current angel eyes for referance;-

    Just bought a 3.18 IS Coupe, also bought myself a pair of genuine angel eyes off an M3. The connectors appear to be different. Is there a way of linking them up without hacking and joining cables?
    Regards
    Matt

    The standard looking lights with the plain glass (or plastic, i dont know) cover look really clean and nice. Defo dont look cheap and crap..
