OP-here are some of the comments your fellow ebay users have left about the sellers e39 headlights. They seem to have the same fit finish and quality as all the ones Ive removed from customers cars and thrown in the trash. the seller told me that the item i won is damage and there are no more 97-03 bmw E39 525i 528i 540i SMOKE PROJECTOR headlightS (390341622108) Item advertised to fit 2001 bmw 530i
I have a 745i with the premium sound system. I had a 740 with the premium. Unfortunately IMHO these higher-end bmws just dont have the great sound systems youd expect. I think the sound is a bit muffled in general and not real crisp. I have had other cars (somewhat lower-end) models with MUCH better sound. The DSP system is nice with the LOGIC7 and all ofthe memory options are good but the sound is
second thing I noticed during my inspection of the car was the sound system. It seems to have very little bass and the sound itself seemed very ordinary. Not like I was expecting from a 15 speaker sound system on the highest end beemer. E38 7 series owners with the premium sound system (with dsp) what do yawl think about the factory sound system. Is it as good as the H&K systems in the current bmw

The front headlights size and fitment are unchanged (they may be spaced differently bc of the front bumper but they are unchanged). bmw usually doesnt change the front of the 3 series or 5 series light fitments for a refresh. The rear lights on the fender are unchaged to the old one - the TRUNK has a new design and thus those lights have changed (which isnt a big deal bc they used the regular lights

Yes the glass lens are the same on all the the 357 series from 80s through mid 90s I believe. The only difference is if the car has fluted or clear (for ellipsoid light) lens. If you go to the JY take a small bladescrewdriverputty knife and gently pry off the lens. My car has low beam ellipsoid (clear lens) with high beam (fluted) glass. Maybe someone can chime in but I believe the whole headlight on the early 90s 7 series is the same as our E34 headlights. Just the headlights though not the whole headlight assembly. Pretty sure I have a pair of ellipsoids from 91 740il (E32) that fit my car. See this httpwww.ebay.comitmbmw-R-L-elli...eb9003&vxpmtr

I am still amazed that the Accord went from halogen lights directly to LED skipping the HID lights. I would imagine the Honda LED headlights will be have a lower replacement cost than the ones in the high end cars. I think Honda is setting a good trend for the auto motive industry. Laser headlights sounds like a good idea but LED is the fiture for now. BTW I was wrong about bmw not having any LED headlights earlier in my original post bmw does offer LED headlights in the 2013 6 series coupe.

Even Kia ..... Last but not least bmw 6 series ...... I sure as hell hope those stuff dont make it onto our 5 series.

Quote Originally Posted by smashhell I know I was thrown into confusion when I first saw the new bmw 6 series. Both Angel eyes AND LED headlights AND LED fog lights What were they thinking Looks like a mess The best thing to do with OEM fog lights is to rip em out and replace with HID fogs. Ive got 6000K HID fogs headlights and AEs on my current ride. So much more light that way.

In fact they were lighting up a small area just a few feet in front of the car but it was dark beyond that. Not good especially here in rural SC. Yes I could have taken it to the dealer but Ive been working on cars for over 25 years and would rather do it myself and learn something in the process. So lets get started. The first thing I had to do was determine where the adjustment is. Fortunately bmw

I hope I get can
I dont get whats so great about the smileys. They dont really look any different than the standard headlight. Putting enclosed headlights on the E34 would be a bad idea. Not only is there no such thing available but the individual round headlights are a classic bmw trademark. The E34 also looks quite goofy with angel eyes in my opinion definitely does not fit the neo-classic look of the E34 5 series.

There is no package or stand-alone option for xenons shown. Looks like there is a mistake somewhere along the way.
328i coupe and not only was the car over a thousand dollars more(than what I paid) but I gave up 17 inch wheels AND xenon headlights. The 16 inch wheels that NOW come standard although 17s are pictured are not a big deal because I changed the wheels anyway but giving up equipment at all and paying over a grand more is adding insult to injury. Hey look I have expressed my love and obsession for bmw

Theyre certainly charging enough for the car about 5000 more than the e90 in 2005.
have a 2003 530. The headlights themselves are white light and the ring or halo around the lights are yellow. I want to change the halo to white. Is this possible with just a bulb change Or what do I have to do to have all white in my headlamps What if any is the difference between Xenon and HID What comes stock with the car Please explain is terms a three year old could understand as I am a new bmw

I had both of my Adaptive headlight controls go out within two months of each other. The car is out of warranty but only has 60K on it. The dealer wants 4K to replace the modules since individual parts are not available. No accidents no potholes and no incidents that I can recall. A real bummer bmw NA wants no part of it and the lights are so bad that I cant drive the car at night. Im told that this
Not to be negative but I think I agree with everyone else those look like the headlights that a Honda Civic should have and not a nice car like a 5 series bmw... I would save some money and get some nicer headlights...

Base or not cars that cost much less than a 320 or a 328 have much more functional and attractive halogen projector headlights. The fact that the corona rings were lost on the halogen lights between the E90 LCI and F30 is absurd.
