Depos are P&P with factory Xenon setup. Everything there is just like factory. If you do not drop the screws into the bumper it is a 10 minute per side install.

Anybody here running these?


I'm not fan of Depo in E39 world but it looks like in E53 world they seem to be best choice if one wants to upgrade to clear corners and angel eyes.

Also, the factory Xenon setup definitely looks outdated IMO. So, I'd appreciate some reviews, especially by long time owners.

Thank you in advance.

Too bad they don't have these for 2006 facelift projector without auto leveling or cornering.

Any of you guys had problems with the auto level connections? Mine is a euro spec car, but I bought the depo's from germany also.

See pics. The pins are identical, but the surrounding collar is not quite. Does one need to cut-off the collar of the depo socket so as to get the 4 pins to reach into it?

Also do not know why I have two identical plugs on the passenger side and only one on the driver side...

The cars had some extrememly ugly chinese halogen versions when I got it without the autoleveling motors before so the plugs were not used..
