It looks awesome, perhaps you can add the AE rings
yeah pretty much, its been getting popular on cars which aren't equipped with projectors too.

i bought the kit from the retrofitsource.com, and since it is a bi-xenon projector meaning the hi-beam and low-beam are together in one housing

I did the exact same thing on my E46. BUT my cut off is perfect and looks almost if not better than the OEM, plus its much easier to put angel eyes in my car then it is in the e90's.

Good work !

wow brave job. looks great.

Many members have tried the oven method and some ended up coming out well-done, causing $1000+ damage.

I wish you posted another DIY..most of them here aren't very clear. So first put them into the oven? With what did you pry them open with and how did you seal it back up? How many hours or days did it take? Merci baradar lol
