For those interested, I'm selling these headlights. I'm looking to trade for your existing ones plus $200 cash.

I'm just looking for a different look than what I created. I want to make the turn signal housings black instead of blue now.

Actually, would you be willing to do this as a service going forward? I'd pay $200 plus trade-in for something similar to what you've done.

I would never do it again, took way too much time to do properly. I'm only selling the two sets I've made so far.

Whereabouts in Socal are you? I wouldn't mind swinging by this weekend and taking a look at the two sets.

After going through 6 total headlights, I ended up with the final design that includes a black turn signal housing. Don't mind the taped up bumper, it's my new Euro bumper waiting for a clear bra.

I'm doing a photo shoot of my car before Bimmerfest, we'll have some great pics then.

I'd consider doing this again if the money was right. We have to take off your bumper, bake open the headlights, paint six pieces, glue it back together, and then put the bumper back on.

Glad to hear that you're reconsidering providing this as a service to other members. Marinate on a price for a bit and then PM me -- I'm still interested in having something similar done to my lights.
