Experience with CarID Headlights e90?

http://www.carid.com/2006-bmw-3-seri...tor-83777.html

I found these headlights from Carid.com, They seem pretty cool not OEM looking but they have other headlights that are OEM. I chatted live with one of the salesmen and he explained to me that the angel eyes are powered with LED bulbs as well as the lowbeam projectors uses halogen, but can be upgraded with an HID kit, in which they provide as well for 100 more dollars.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these or feedback.

That's scary. I have never heard of them before, and those aren't the DEPOs, so I don't know. You're taking a big risk here. The DEPOs are not the greatest headlights ever in terms of quality...so this would be a literal shot in the dark. If you're heart set on it, go for it. But make sure you use an American Express card or PayPal...basically something with really good buyer protection.

I say go OEM or go home even the DEPOs projectors aren't good(and the ones you linked aren't even close to DEPO imo). It is possible to do OEM conversions just a lot of people don't want to pay the price for OEM but I know those who do never regret it.
