I'm hoping some of you experienced e39 owners can shine a definitive light on this subject. I've read a few posts on retrofitting Xenon headlights but none seem to be complete. They usually invlove 3rd party products, a complete retro fitting kit, updating pre-facelift to facelift models or just end up being far too ambiguous to risk spending money on. I have a facelift 2002 model. It's got BMW/Hella head lamps, angel eyes with projector dipped lenses (see pics). It also has the intensive wash option. It DOESN'T have auto headlight leveling. What I'm wanting to know is, what will I need to install the Xenon light system on my car. Am I right in thinking all I'll need is the ballast packs, brackets and bulbs so it will be plug and play, or am I missing something. I'm aware that UK MOT law dictates that auto leveling and lamp wash systems do NOT have to be fitted but if they are, they MUST be working. I'm wanting to use genuine BMW prodcuts. I've heard of an ebay user selling the genuine BMW ballasts, brackets and bulbs for about £90. Here are some pics of the headlights on my car. Thanks in advance.
