2009 BMW 328i headlights upgrade

My car came with halogen headlight and I'm thinking to upgrade it to xenon. I saw Depo V2 Angel halo xenon hid headlight + led corner signal from Fishcake321 on EBay. That headlight is exactly what I'm looking for but I don't know the quality of it. Any one on here have any experienced about this depo?

Thank you for your time

I went aftermarket. It's really a hit or miss with aftermarket. I heard good and bad and you really don't know we are getting or what quality its going to be in. I replaced my halogens with ipexmotoring headlights off of eBay for $300. They work fine, no problems. Called "Twin CCFL Halo LED SMD projector headlights black".

Please use your Valeo headlights, you'll see it on top of your headlight, do not go aftermarket. Please convert your headlights with Bavarian X in LA, look for Duy or from Florida, OSS look for Luis. You can upgrade your halogens and just find a better H7 bulb I believe of 6000k and code out your amber signal light.

DEPO will give you headaches.

Umnitza are really nice but it was just a hassle getting them coded out. I still get an error but only when it's cold out.
