    I have just purchased a new full set Angel Eyes Headlamps, the problem is that they are from a Saloon and with my car being a Compact they have different plugs on the end.

    Does anyone know if you can get an adaptor plug or will it be the case of cutting wires and soldering!!

    Thanks, Baz.

    AFAIK its a case of cutting and soldering.I believe there is a guide somewhere if not hopefully someone has done this before and can offer advice.Funny thing that the compact has different headlights to the rest of the E36 range-No idea why BMW did that
