E90 projector retrofit and black out

So i didn't like any of the aftermarket headlight options and a set of oem projectors was more than i wanted to spend and i didn't feel like coding and doing all the other nonsense. So i opted to buy a set of bi-xenon projector housings and retro fit them into the stock halogen headlights.

Here is the finished product, feel free to comment away

Well done! What bi-xenon projectors did you use/where did you get them? Gonna treat us to any beam pattern shots?

Wow that's impressive. But I do agree about getting some angel eyes in there.

Assume you baked them open? I am tempted, how difficult was it?

Looks great... Makes me want to try even more

yeah, it honestly wasnt that bad, ive done harder headlights, you just need to take your time and make sure you leave it in the oven long enough and with a tad bit of force they will pop open

this is what all the motorcycle riders would do if they decide to add projectors and retrofit them in the reflector housings

It looks awesome, perhaps you can add the AE rings
