    hey guys, i have an e46 compact and my dip light seems very faint. full beams is powerful though! i tend to turn my front fogs to compensate but thats gtting annoying now. i was looking at getting new xenon bulbs. are these on a simple plug and play type thing or do i need to do some sort of conversion! Im not referring to HID angel lights thought they would be a nice to have sometime in the future. also is there anything specific in terms of a brand, power etc i should go for?

    Same boat here mate
    The lights seem weak and yellowed.


    Im going to try some xenon bulbs (just being lazy about it)
    I made a thread not long ago about bulbs.

    Everyone suggests HID kit and is supposed to be fairly straight forward but Im going to keep things simple and try the bulbs alone for now.

    ah also do you use the same light bulbs for the sidelights as you do with the main full beam light?
