after market angel eyes

I am planning on purchasing these online or via local shops(have not decided on which brand yet) but also want them installed professionally. Does anybody know a shop in houston or katy area that does this? I have an 05 545i.Thanks in advance!

i did see a video in youtube where the guy removed the whole passenger light assembly in less than 5 minutes and changed the bulb supplying the angel eyes(seemed really easy and straight forward). My question is, does it have to be balanced (light projection low beam) afterwards since the whole thing was totally removed?This is probably a dumb question but important before i do some removing.

Ok, these instructions are for a 7 series, but theres not that much difference:

BMW E38 Angel-Eye Fitting Instructions + Xenon

you dont need to cut the wires, with the new sets you either plug them in to the back of the side light holder or put a terminal block in from the side light wires.

I dont think that assembly is similar to the e60 at all. Thanks anyway! Though my last question was actually regarding balancing the projector low beam after taking the whole assembly taken off the chasis, if it is necessary.
