    I recently fitted this kit to my coupe. only took me about 10min to do as everything you need to do it came with it I only changed the dipped beam bulbs and I wouldn't use HIDs in your hi beam since from what i understand they dont react well to being flashed on and off quickly like you can do with normal halogen bulbs

    I just did mine on a facelift 05 painful thing's where
    1 fitting the bulb as it has a wire not a plug so had to take the retaining spring off to pass wire pain to put back on with wire and bulb in way
    2 Got kit from E bay for E46 when the kit came I found out it was not a full kit you have to buy canbus parts or you get warning light up on dash so worth checking if the kit has the canbus part.
    I only did dip beam and got some 100w for main beam then when you have done this they look good apart from side lights that look very yellow so got LED sides next (don't go for the blue ones they are really blue)
