Full Spec Lighting Build for this Widebody BMW E61
My buddy is building a crazy E61 and asked my to handle the lighting, although I HATE working on these headlights, I couldn't leave a fellow E61 owner hanging. LTMW is handling the air ride, Pandem widebody install, and paint.

Not much too much room to work with on these dynamic BMW headlights
This may not mean anything to most people but
will understand the accomplishment of opening and clearing all the oem permaseal...
I drilled some additional holes and mounted the MD2S projector with the oem hardware in the oem mounting locations! Clean! Projector also has a black demon eye.
Morimoto xb LED fogs getting paint-taped prior to mounting
Some quick setting putty to hold them in place
Oem wiring was in bad shape so I trimmed and protected the exposed wires.
Soldered wiring with a PNP connection for the LED corner light.
Corner lights after paint
Fitment came out super clean, really happy about the oem+ appearance
D1S-D2S ignitors mating the oem ballast and MD2S bulbs.
