***HID install GUIDE for E46 and E39***

You will need these following equipment:
Dremel, with sanding head, grinding, and cutting
JB Weld
3M double sided tape
Drill with a big drill bit
2 - OEM H7 Bulb holders

most of these can be found at your local automotive store. OEM H7 bulb holders can be purchased at your local stealership for 13 bucks each if in case you mess up on the ones you have now.

Ok step one...unplug your lowbeam adapter from your OEM H7 bulb holders.

2)Then remove your H7 bulb and keep in a safe place...never know when you might need them.

3)Bring out the dremel and attack the cutting tip to it.

4)Cut the H7 bulb holder in half, right above the metal prongs that accept your H7 bulbs. Have a friend hold the H7 base for you while you dremel around it, this is much easier than doing it yourself and safer.

5) when done cutting make sure to sand down the top part to remove the parts that are bulging out, also sanding helps the JB weld hold the bond ALOT better. Sand both top and bottom parts to achieve smoothness.

6) put this aside for now and get mix the JB weld, apply JB weld to the bottom of the HID bulb holder and to the top of the H7 Base.
**Make sure all surfaces are sanded before applying JB Weld, otherwise bond will not be strong enuff.**

7) Wait 5-6 minutes to allow bond to become strong
