I practiced on one before I started.


Here's all the goodies, lenses, laminx and 2 fog lights


First off, gently remove the seal


Cut off as much of the old silicone as possible and slowly start cutting around the edges, WEAR EYE PROTECTION, shards of glass are know to come flying off


The best way to do this part is in a garbage with eye protection, pry the glass off since you already weaked the seal in the last step


Use tools whenever possible because, GLASS IS SHARP!!!!!!!


Scrape out all the old silicone from the grove


Thoroughly wash them out, man these things clean up nice...


Here I applied the lamin-x...slowly starting from one side working across to the other, these stuff is breathable, so if you get some super fine bubbles, dont worry they will work themselves out. Now i will let it all dry up over night, tomorrow on goes the silicone and lenses/seals


All sealed up, and with DDM's 35w 3000k H3 HID's installed...$29 for the kit!!! :argh


All finished up, gorgeous, couldnt ask for more, except maybe a straight front valance :argh

This should cover just about any BMW that has aftermarket lenses available, for foglights or headlights...this writeup is the same for E30 headlights/highbeams also so long as you have the ellipsoids

BMW Lights BMW Fog Lights BMW Headlight Lenses <==where to get the lenses

Lamin-x Protective Films - Protect with Style <==where to get the lamin-x in various colors

Probably the easiest DIY evAr

Excellent pictorial and instructions, but...Sorry for my ignorance but do we have Model by model section where this would be viewed by many ie: separate sections for all 'e' models with all members DIY's. I know we have E31, E39 E38sections but no sub sections ie. chat, mods, fixes etc or am I not looking in the correct places??

unfortunately there is not enough DIY's on here to break down the different models, and this write up works for ALL bmw models with replacement lenses available...
