I have a 2002 registered 325Ci sport coupe, recently I attempted to
purchase replacement headlamps which included the angel eyes.. There
seems to be a lot of confusion among third party motor-factors who
supply these aftermarket parts, My BMW coincides with the 'facelift'
year, it is a '51 plate, the problem that seems to arise is concerning
the fitting of the front flasher lamps to these headlamps, my lamps are
the pre-facelift type, its a 2 door coupe ...so why all the fuss when I
try to locate these on eBay? There is a difference on the 2/4 door
models I know, but one manufacturer emailed me telling me that either
headlamp would be ok to fit!! so I replied, telling them that this
would be impossible, the front wing recess for the flasher lamps is
clearly a different shape along with the shape(s) of the flasher lamps,
and this has confused them!!! The headlights have different 'fittings'
for either flasher lamp, I had these h/lamps fitted at the dealership
where I work, only for the tech to realise that the flasher lamps would
not 'join' to the headlamps!! arghhh!
Any ideas on how to get a pair of Angel eye h/lamps without all the
fuss would be greatly appreciated...
