Why did you do the change and how much did it cost ?Originally posted by BMW-Mike:
I have just installed the new headlights on my BMW and they look great. The rearlights are being replaced next week.
The lights have an outer ring around the "normal" light /daytime running lights as you call them. But there are also a ring around the high beam light.
There are several pages, where you can see the lights in "action".

Were you able to re-use the Xenon lamps from the old headlights?Originally posted by BMW-Mike:
I (the mechanic)did use the existing xenon bulbs, as I understood it, but i´ll talk to him tomorrow and post an answar afterwards.
But the owner of the BMW shop, where I bought my BMW is a good friend of mine, so the price may be a little bit of. But I will look into it.
The country i´m living in, is not very car friendly. So when we buy a car here, we have to pay for tree (taxes). That means a BMW M5 costs around 170.000$. Stupid is´t it... Therefore we have to save on the equipment, haha, as you can see on the prices.
