    If it's just lens: http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...placement.html
    Replacement headlights: http://www.khoalty.com/bmw-e46/light...eadlights.html

    If her 325ci is a facelift coupe (2004+ and some late 2003 models for non-M coupes) then she will need a different kind of headlight/lens.
    Here is an image of a facelift coupe headlight. Note the pointy shaped corner lights. http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/6...eadlight01.jpg

    If it's a facelift coupe the lens cannot be replaced easily and replacement headlights can be purchased: http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=2453

    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    I believe they are different, but not sure for certain. I had an M3 which is prefacelift in all the years

    Anybody know of good places to find an OEM replacement light? And how do drop in HID kits like DDM's work with the BMW halogen projectors? Obviously I know that retrofits would be the best, but curious if the light output is decent if she just buys a new passenger headlight then does a drop in HID kit..

    This is the correct replacement headlight for the facelift coupe:

    I don't like Umnitza as a vendor but the canbus 35w HID kit is good at avoiding error lights on cars that came with halogen lights from the factory. Don't bother with their FX-R retrofit or lens protection film. Link: http://www.umnitza.com/index.php?mai...oducts_id=1231
