habbie, or someone. i've got a question

I bought the projector46's about a month ago, and now i have a new car. I have HIDs already so my question is ..

can I move the blubs from your headlights to my new car?

and - can I move the DDE's from one to the other. it's almost like I'm just swapping headlights but one is facelifted the other isn't.

both are e46's? if the car is equiped with the factory hids (d2s capsules) your p46 were h7's so no go on that front unless you just buy d2s capsules in the temp you want, the angel eyes should be no problem at all.

what happened to the clips???
use a razor blade to cut the adhesive/glue, be careful and gentle and they will come out.
you give up too easily...

ok. i'm looking at these headlights carefuly. they are DEPO's .. if that changes anything. the actual dome to the lights (high beams) have grooves made around it that hold the DDE's perfectly. they were made to that size. the M3 does not have this.

i really 99% don't think they will fit if i take them out.

edit: got the last post. let's chat.
