    Here you go guys:

    Before:




    Half-way:






    Complete:






    I have the original bulb holders so it wouldn't even take 1 minute to change over to standard for MOT.

    Now to take out at dark and see the difference, the beam in the daylight even illumates the road!!!!

    They look like reflector headlamps to me. Projectors have a ball-type appearance, like below;



    Did you get a standard xenon bulb kit, e.g H7 xenon kit, or did you go for H7R kit?
    As you have reflector headlights then ideally you should have gone for the H7R Xenon/HID Conversion kit, otherwise your headlights will be giving out extra glare and not as good a beam pattern.
    An H7 kit would have been for suited for projector headlights.

    And Joe, they look like reflectors to me as well, especially from the o/s light in the second pic.

    Here's a pic of the n/s headlight assembly on mine. Projector headlight behind the glass lens on the outer side, and high beam halogen bulb in a reflector housing on the inner.

    My mistake, just checked. Mine are reflector bulbs.

    They were chosen specifically for my E46 model so all good. Look ace!

    Sorry to add to the questions, but what rating did you decide to go for? And where did you get yours from? The kits I keep finding are about £170!
