    Chaps.....

    Right. One of my headlights has been smashed. And obviously......i cant drive anywhere without headlights. The angel eye rings have been playing up on mine and been a pain in the arse, sometimes working, sometimes not, sometimes one working etc. Anyway. I dont want all this "crystal" shite, but these black ones look quite smart.

    What do you lot reckon to these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-3-SERIES-E...item439db2cf2d

    I think i can get my HIDs in them as well so.....well.....what do you reckon?

    I'd ask if you can fit HID's to be safe before you buy because HID are much hotter and could melt the plastic bits

    Do the HID bits not go throught plastic bits in the OEM lights i have at the moment? Or are you saying that these might be a softer compound of plastic?

    Cheers

    I have sent the company the above mentioned question upon whether they will accept HIDs without melting.

    Ive never seen aftermarket headlights that actually fit properly, there are usually gaps & uneven fitting issues. I wouldn't touch anything like this with a barge pole, OEM is the way to go IMHO. Second hand they're cheap enough.

    My honest opinion is that aftermarket headlights on E36's with angel eyes generally ruin the distinctive look of the E36's, but that's only my view

    Stick with standard units, as mentioned fit is perfect and look so much better, i went for something similar to the ones u have shown and i took em out after a coulpe of weeks as they looked shocking.

    got a pair of brand new std lucas items on ebay for less than £40 still boxed and never fitted.

    but of course this is just my own opinion mate.

    hope this helps u.

    Do these type of things not fit? I couldnt buy second hand lights. If i go OEM again i will have to buy two brand new ones. If you only buy one then the old one looks tosh. Are they a lot of money????

    no the ones i bought were brand spanking new ones in the boxes from ebay.

    they cost me a total inc del around £55.

    in all fairness they were a bargain and i`d never go for any other type.

    hope we have helped amos.
