Solution for factory equipped xenon cars wanting "rolling gears" style headlights

So I'm in the process of gathering up the parts, diy guides, and any general knowledge that one would need to do a full headlight restoration. Blacking out everything inside, cleaning up the lenses, and adding led dtm rings is my plan and up until this point I was planning on buying the bavgruppe rings. Most of memebers of the community, including myself really like the way the rolling gear headlights look but only to find out they only have them for factory halogen headlight equipped cars. Stumbled on to these and wanted to get some feedback as well as general thoughts on if these would be "superior", in regards to athletics and quality, to other dtm rings for you guys. I'm still leaning towards bavgruppe since haven't really found to many bad reviews but I was ready to buy the rolling gears and figure out a way to make them work I liked the look/the price so Much.

Look at this on eBay:

Seems like they come with the tabs to mount too that most people have had to fabricate.

I would definitely just go with bavgruppe they are known for their fitment, with these you don't know what you're going to get if it fits 30 different cars.


I recently purchased onEighty lights for the simplicity then taking apart the E90 LCI headlight. (more difficult than E92's)

Click sig for build thread.

Any way of actually getting the rolling gears headlights onto a xenon equipped car? I had a minor front end accident with my 335i and dont want to spend so much on xenon headlights
