they're off ebay, big surprise.... for a bmw, it was $200 for the lights then chop em up! & alot of work to get um to fit. cutting the turn signals off and rebuilt the inside plate with plexi and spraying black. then build the sides with plexi and silicon.

Thats why they are so familiar. I had a E36.... Damn that car got totalled. Wish I knew I would have kept the headlights.

well the thing about the oem headlights on alot of those cars came with glass lenses.... the aftermarket remakes are all made of plastic, which will be alot easier to cut up and modify.
