Best site to Order Xenons for 09 328i?

What is the best place to order Xenons for my 09 328i with the basic Halogen lights? Also, what size is the bulb I'll be looking for? Thanks in advance.

Don't just stick HID bulbs into your halogen housings, it's illegal and blinds other drivers.

I think Markanthony3210 is looking for HIDs on a budget. $1350 for headlights is a bit much.

Just do a search on the forums and you will be able to get some info on ordering kits.

edit: Nevermind, I forgot the 09 LCI part.

I'd get the Depo Projector headlights. They come with bulbs and the clear ambers which is a plus in my books.

Can you tell these are non-oem aftermarket OR does the quality look good like oem?

Thanks guys! I like the idea of ordering new housings, however spending over $1000 for headlights is a bit extreme. Are there any good brand headlight housings that are under $500?

Thanks for the help. However, my vehicle is a 2009, so these aren't compatible.

What is the best Xenon brand to choose from? I don't want something that's cheap and will last 2 months. ^_^

I'm in the same boat here. I have halogens and want to convert to xenon but don't want to spend anymore than $500-600. Also, I don't know much about the conversion so I'm afraid of buying the wrong part. Soooo, time to read and learn
