I recommend ordering over the phone or at least calling and ensuring that they send you the smaller horseshoe. They have two sizes, and it took me 10 emails and about a dozen photos to convince them that they sent me the wrong size. Even then they didnt admit it, just said "well, we use that one on e92, but we can send you the smaller one if it fits what youre trying to do better". Nevermind that the ring was physically too big to even fit in the headlight housing.

Also, for what its worth, even though I was suspicious prior to starting the install, sent photos, and got the green light from them, once I started the install, tore my car apart, and found that they had sent the wrong part, they refused to overnight me the right part. I felt they should have done so since their double screw up left me stranded without my car for a few days.

On the flip side, it turned out ok. There are some things I'd do differently next time, but I'd say by far the hardest part is getting the headlights out. Opening them and installing the rings is cake in comparison.
