You can get them on Ebay for 10 bucks, buy primer and paint in Autozone for another 6, spray them and voila! dramatically changes the look. I would advise against E46-style ones (that go around the entire headlight), as the fit isn't that precise and the look isn't mean enough

And voila, it would look like ass. I'd spend more than that if I were you. Keep in mind they will be on the leading edge of every drive, in the rain, snow, and whatever else. I would recomend Kamei eyebrows from Bavauto.com They come with all the components necessary for installation, that have pretty much been unmentioned until now. They come with an installation kit (epoxy, a permanent mounting screw, primer for the headlights, etc.) I had mine professionally sprayed with factory paint for $50. They look great regardless, but are almost manditory on an e36 with DDE. Like the oem's on the 7series, they are open at the top. The eyelids cover the gap, and make the car look mean as hell at the same time.

Nah - it looks pretty good. They're too small to distinguish between, e.g., regular black and jet black factory paint. Spray some clearcoat on top and you won't see the difference.

I did try both - I had my first set factory-paint-sprayed for 35$. Then with Floridean hurricanes this September, one detached and got carried away. So I bought another set and srayed them myself. Very happy with the result - and you probably will be too - unless you're creating a "show-mobile"

I doubt you can see the paint quality - but I'll attach the front shot of mine.
