    Hi SEWELLY

    Is yours the facelift model?

    I've looked into doing this mod for my facelift E46 saloon and I've been told you have to break the sealing compound on the headlight unit,
    so you can split the headlight and fit the CCFL rings( Angel Eyes),
    unfortunately I've also read that to do this you have put the headlight unit into a heated oven

    This only applies to coupes, not saloon headlights.

    Yup no baking required for saloon models, dead easy clip apart and easy install of AE's..
