What you have is a year 2000 exclusive headlight just for the M5. There are videos out there on how to rebuild/replace the adjusters.

If you decide to get the angel eyes headlights, I have a few sets.

Sounds like you have the 'typical' 2000MY headlights with HIDs. On my MY2000, the headlight lenses are 'snapped' on with many different attachment points. It is VERY easy to take them apart and rebuild them. It may take you 30 min to do the first and 15 for the second. I would suggest trying yourself.

Can you buy just the lenses for the 2000MY headlights?

Mate, if I recall you're down my neck of the woods? I did the adjusters in mine (though they are angel eyes) and while it was a right royal pain in the, um, arm, I'd be happy enough to give you a hand.

PM me if you like.
