Hi. I have been looking around the forums for awhile and cant really find the answer to my questions about factory HID replacment of non HID cars. Im sure it has been brought up before, but i cant find it.

Basically, I just bought a 2001 325ci, and as one of my customizations, i would LOVE to add the HID lights to it. I am seeing e46 HID headlights on ebay, and i was thinking.... why not just swap headlight assemblies?

So far, the only thing i can tell as a possible problem is that the OBC may come back with a low beam failure reading? Or that the headlights dont auto-level? Are those problems? Are there any solutions?

I just REALLY want the nice HID projectors in my e46. They look slick.

Can anyone help?

thank you so much. The link looks very promising.

Just one last question:

Anyone know what the difference is between Sedan Headlight assemblies and Coupe headlight assemblies? Is there a difference in size or clips?
