I need to upgrade my headlight?

I want xenon headlights with the brightest AE.

I bought a set of Depo headlights from Umnitza; loaded with every option... The Ov2 AE, FX-R, and the blah blaa blaah.. Yep.. They are 100% CRAP!! I might as well drive down the highway and throw my $800 dollars out the window. They leak, fog, smell burnt, and headlights are only a week old.

Umnitza has the worst service; so I had to do a chargeback on my card. Matt the owner, is full of SH!!!!!T!!!!!! Always complaing he is short handed. How is that my problem?

Anyways, I just want a good set of headlights with xenon's and awesome AE's.

Suggestions and comments on where I may buy a set of xenon headlights w/ AE, that fill with water when I wash my car, and will plug and play.

I have a 2010 LCI 328i w/ halogen headlights.

Thank You so much!

Honestly oem is the best bet and you wont have to worry about quality issues check out used lights

I thought euro OEM headlights needed to be rewired; or something along those lines.

because you are going from halogen to xenon, you will need rewiring regardless if it's euro or not

here's a guide:
