I recently got an e34, and I waswondering if these are good headlights for it, or should I just replace the lenses:

The ones that I have now have cracked high beams, and the low beams simply look like crap.

There IS a replacement for displacement - it's called volumetric efficiency

Good afternoon,

I have a 95 e34 and purchased a set of simalar assemblys and now need to return them. I really don't think is is worth the pain.. The ones that I purchased were the angel eyes and the seller stated that they were direct bolt on / plug & play.... Not....

The wiring harnesses were all wrong, incorrect bulbs, cheap mfg and plastic.

Anyway.. My 2 cents.

Do you think these would look fine? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33710

I'm not sure if they will look right with clear corners.

If you want a nice set check out bekkers.com They have nice stuff. Lens's to full smoke headlight assemblies. If your lens's are not cracked, just pitted then get Bavarian Autosports urethane lens covers. It makes pitted lens's look brand new. The set covers all four headlights two foglights and two blinkers. I bought a set and they work great.

Yeah, they are cracked(both highbeams at least). I ordered some lenses from ebay already. they are made of glass and are completely clear. I can still return those, because now I have my doubts. I hope they are thick, so they can't be broken by rock pebbles or anything else that might break them.

Just checked out that bekker's parts site. Their prices are way to high. I could get that stuff at the dealership for much less.

I purchased the lenses instead of headlight assemblies. They are made out of glass, and are clear with no pattern whatsoever. I wonder if they would look right. If not, I would be able to return them within 30 days.
