this was my solution to those colored cables!!

I didn't like the bar either.. I almost did what you did but I was too worried I'd be able to see that epoxy... Are you able to see that? I think the bar grew on me tho and I don mind it anymore

i probably couldve cleaned the epoxy up a little.. It's not noticeable since it's clear.

yes, they are for all sorts of Bimmers. You actually get E46 installation instructions.

Quick question, about to do it this long weekend, do you use any glue to glue the headlights back together?

Umnitza has listed a specific set of E9X V4 AEs. Is there even a difference?

The E9X version is $349 compared to the E46 version which is $269? $80 difference? Stupid M tax?

Did you guys just order the E46 M3 version?

***********************STEP 12******************
12. Okay so I dont have pictures for the wiring , but all you need to do is tap the brown wire and the red wire to the angel eye H8 bulb harness. The leftover white one hooks up to the low beam power on the Xenon ballast. Once wired, you should temporarily reinstall and power up the car to see if it works.

Awesome writeup man thanks! Really wanted to do this, but I was worried about trying to do it myself. This helps tremendously
