93 325i got a little smashed. My Daughters car. I have already ordered the Fender, Bumper cover, and part above bumper, can't name it right now. I still need to find headlights and corners. Here is were I need help. I want the headlights to match so might as well upgrade to replace the faded worn out stock lenses. There are alot for sale. What is a better brand that will last a while, not leak, fog, or turn to junk?

Here are a few pics of the damage.

have you tried your local junk yard? you can find lights there. also ask in the classifieds maybe someone who has changed to clear corners and maybe even angel eyes have their spare parts.

Zkw euro spec ellipsoid projectors, wow that's a lot for one breath, those are probably your best bet, those are top quality lights, if you want something a little more economical almost just as good as the zkw's are the depo ellipsoid projectors,

hope this helps

also note that these will require an h1 bulb unlike the regular 9006 bulbs that were on the stock headlights, i'm pretty sure i read on the umnitza site that they ship them with bulbs

I am looking for stock replacements only. Junk Yards have faded lights. Just making sure I am not going to get shanked when I drop $300 on lights and corners.

300$ is pretty good. now you might not want to go for angel eyes if you are just replacing them, but you might want to look into spending a tiny bit more... very little, and buy some european ellipsoids without angel eyes. These are glass and your daughter will be able to see 10x better! the stock ones put out very little light, and will fog up again! just a thought! any more questions on the ellipsoids feel free to ask, someone will be able to answer
