    I am looking at fitting a set of HID's to my 2003 e46 compact but I am un-sure about what kind to get and also what else is needed to fit them. I have been reading around the forum and found that i will need;

    HID bulb adaptors- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2X-HID-BULB-HO...item415018a872 are they the correct ones?

    and a set of HID's - what kelvin is recomended?

    is there anything else that i will need to get?

    I have also read that it might bring a light up on my dash, Is this true if so how can i get around this problem?

    Thanks matt

    hi best just looking for a set which is designed for the e46 and they will say if they should say something like will not show error message when fitted as its down too the ballast used.also no extra tools required just plug and play.

    Hi Matt, what headlights do you have? Are they projector (the small glass domes) or are they reflectors (traditional headlights) because this will alter which would be a better bulb to choose.
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!
