Welcome mate! Post up some pics of the car if you have time. You should also consider adding blackline rear taillights to your list

I take it that you have halogen reflector headlamps and wish to upgrade to projector headlamps with angel eyes?

If so, I dont think DEPO are in business anymore - and their products are/were rubbish anyway.

My advice would be to look at ebay.uk for a set of pre-lci e90 xenon headlamps - they seem to go for about 150 pounds each. That is pretty cheap and they are RHD biased unlike those from the states - which are cheaper but wouldnt be legal here. Then buy a set of D1 bulbs (~$100 each) and you can use the other bulbs from your stock housing.

Then look for the the thread on halogen-Xenon conversion under the DIY section of these forums.

These earlier e90s used a D1 HID bulb for low beam and a standard H7 Halogen for the high beam - they are not bi-xenon which would be much harder to retrofit.
