    Hi folks, i have angel eyes in my coupe the now they are all 1 piece lights,

    i want to know what are the best lights to replace these with??

    most members have swung me in the direction of OEM??

    but i want to also know best place to buy these new?? or just ebay or scrap yard??

    and is there any difference in M3 standard light as apposed to 318 or 328's headlight??

    cheers guys!!!

    sorry i never notice i had not changed title name!!!

    but i just assumed E36 and Coupe would be enough for a headlight question??
    i am sure engine size and year has no affect on the fittings etc??

    Its the forum rules and don't worry I've added the 318is bit for your this time.
    AFAIK all the E36's had the same bosch headlightswith H1 bulbs except for the compact which had hella headlights with H7 bulbs.Hella make the angel eye headlights but they're all interchangeable as far as I am aware therefore no difference between an M3 headlight or a 318/325/328 etc Coupe/saloon/touring/cabriolet and even compact will fit no problem

    Only if you want to pay OTT prices for them .Personally I would look on Ebay or the local scrappies or our forum vendors Quarry Motors Parts Requests
