    hehehe, no idea then mate.

    I phoned BMstyling today, but they're out of stock of the black Depo headlights. Anybody else sell them?

    Below are some unaltered pics of my black Depos projectors with 6000k predator chromium angels pre installed. All internal parts and external casing sections are interchangebale with my OEM halogen headlight units.......... i know this cause i had a small accident which cracked the drivers side lense and the rear black plastic casing. So i removed the internal projector components (incl black shroud) and installed them into my original halogen casing and lense.







    I got them from Umnitza in the US for about £350 delivered, but there will be a few sellers in the UK also. Had them for 2 and half years now, only thing is in winter on cold days they take a few minutes to come on fully, but that could be cause i wire tapped them into the side light wiring instead of soldering them in...... yeh, yeh i know lazy amateur!

    Hi guys, I know this is an old thread, but rather than starting a new one, i thought I could continue here (plus, it shows i've been using the searcg ). I have a 2001 pre faclift 330ci coupe. Now it has angle eyes and was looking into upgrading to xenon/HIDS. thing is i've been reading and people seem to mention "depo??" etc. Now if im right, xenons, HIDS were optional on the pre-facelifts right, so plug and play is an option with resistors if im right? projectors seem to be an easier option from reading round. Could i get a set off pre-faclift xenon/HIDS and plug them straight in?

    I know this has been asked a few times but the jargon is a little confusing, sorry.

    Thanks

    Hmmm i dont know of any preface lift cars that have HID xeons other than the M3 after 2004 but they would cost a fortune and be a lot harder to fit, your best bet and cheapest option is to get a depo set for your motor as it will be a lot easier

    Thanks for the reply mate, could you just explain what you mean by "depo?" looking at my lights there seems to be a "ballast" behind the drivers side headlight. I think the Umnitza angel eyes are the way to go with the xenon upgrade!

    right well if im correct, but dont hold me to this i think it means aftermarket or not from BMW as a standard item so the items you are looking at on that site are depo, or at least that is my understanding of it

    And yes the umnitza angel eyes are the best i have seen around, and you get what you pay for after all plus with the projector xeon they will look perfect very modern

    When i called them they will possibly do you a deal if you buy both at once

    small bump here guys
    do the depo headlights come with Xenon/hid installed ready to connect to standard loom?

    im after an angel and HID headlight
    i currently have a facelift headlight with halogen projector
    i dont fancy taking it all apart to do ccfl and hids so if the depos come with xenons anyway then win/win
