I wouldnt do it.... this headlight assembly isnt something you can buy on ebay. Its very expensive!!! Plus you could never get it to seal right again

Actually, the headlight housing can be resealed properly. BMW used a soft silicone to glue it all together, so if done with the right epoxy, they should reseal just fine. That's why I'm going to seal each crevice multiple times.
