+1, patiently waiting for the type II diffuser, even though the 3D rep from Adamaster looks very appetizing as well.

Check the Sponsor For Sale forum, I recently announced that the E92 version just went into mass production.

Alright everyone, here are the pics. My new Euro bumper obviously isn't attached yet, so it's hard to get a full impression of what the final product will look like overall, but you get to see the headlights after all the changes. I personally think they look evil now; they look like they're grimacing at you. I'd like everyone's honest opinions on how they look. Changes made:

1. Removed the orange corner LED
2. Painted black the two chrome housings within the headlight
3. Painted blue the clear turn signal housing
4. Added 12000k HID halos
5. Added 6000k HID headlight bulbs

Stock:

I'm not wild about the blue corner lens, but the lack of chrome looks infinitely better. Too bad this is such a pain to mod, otherwise I'd do it in a heartbeat.

If I were to sell a set of headlights with the entire interior painted matte black, would anyone be interested in buying them? I ask because I have a spare set of headlights sitting in my workshop.

Blue lights on civilian cars are illegal in most jurisdictions, aren't they? Seems like you're just asking to get pulled over.

Do you have any more pics of those 12,000k HID Angel's? I have the 8000k's installed and they were much whiter than I expected. I'm trying to match my 8000k Headlights & 8500k HID Fogs and i'm not sure if i should order the 10,000k's or the 12,000k's. Any additional pics would be greatly appreciated.

Greg: Always such the stickler for the minutiae of ridiculous traffic infractions... Don't forget your missing front plate, in your own forum signature. . I run exactly the same way, just can't bear to blemish the front of my car. I have only got one ticket thus far for this and it was while parked in Beverly Hills. Rat bastards. At least it was just a "fix it" ticket.

I guess he'd hate me then. I have had my plates in my trunk for good 3 months now. I refuse to mount them.
