evening everyone

have checked within the e46 page, can't find anything relating to this, so here goes

does anyone know where i can buy replacement headlamp lenses for my 1999 e46 323ci coupe

the lights are awful, look as though they've been cleaned with a scouring pad
driving at night, despite the bulb upgrade, i still cant see too well

any suggestions please let me know

Depends how much you want to pay :) Your local BMW dealer may be able to help, or have a look on ebay http://shop.ebay.co.uk/i.html?rt=nc...Parts_SM&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282

Just look for someone selling the right side for yours. Bear in mind that your headlight *may* be bonded instead of clipped so replacing the lense, while totally do-able may need a bit more work (like baking the light assembly for a few minutes :) )

No worries, easy if there clipped on, if your stuck, just look for a guide on fitting e46 CCFL angel eyes, follow the bits up to taking the lense off then miss out the angel eyes bit and put back together :)
