Hey guys so as I've found out the hard way, getting the casing off the facelift E46 is a bit of a nightmare and was wondering if there way an easier way than (I still can't believe this is the best way to do it) baking my headlamps? Is there a place I can just buy headlamps with them pre installed or am I just missing something here ? Thanks.

Sometimes, more economical to sell the car and get one with angel eyes already.....
Only slightly kidding....

It's really easy once you get them out.
It's like 5 torx screws, take bulbs out.
Stick in oven at 80 for 5 mins, prise apart and don't forget the clippy bits.
I just use a smallish flat head to get the gap, then a large one and turn it gently.
If it doesn't come apart easy, just pop it back in to required taste.

Wait until you want to upgrade the projectors ;) You'll understand pain.
