Opinion on headlight upgrade

I have a bunch or build up on my headlights that I need to wet sand in order to get off. I have tried the headlight restoration kits to no avail. They helped, but still not to my par. Instead of putting any more effort into head lights I do not even like, I want to know if anyone has pictures of thier upgraded headlights and if you can please post them.

The headlights from www.bavauto.com would be my first choice, but I don't have $900 bucks to drop on headlights . Just looking for alternative options that leaves a little in my pocket. Thanks as always for all the help!! I want my license plate cover too LOL

Check ebay first.

Do you have halogen or Xenon? I always check ebay first.

I believe these are the same Depos for a lot less;
Ebay item #150573667957

....for the newer look try this one;
Ebay item #160558966485

...and my personal favorite;
Ebay item #330511068685

There are other options out there, but IMHO, if they are not close to factory, then they begin to look a little cheesy in their appearance and not what a BMW deserves. If you are going aftermarket, try to stick with the ones that have the larger reflectors on the inside (high beams) as they tend to look more OEM and less ricey.

I hope this helps!

And ask the seller for the black housing one

You have xenon then none of those headlights are in links above not going to work for your . Those are for halogen upgrade.
You need to look at how to article on top of homepage then modify your own or send me your I upgrade them to the way you want it.
